Paula’s little brother, Bubba, owns Uncle Bubba’s Oyster House with his big sister. In this video recorded just off the back dock of Paula’s house overlooking Turner’s Creek, he teaches us all about shrimp sizes. Below is a chart to help you follow along.
All Shrimp are sold by sizes, whether they are sold by the actual count or by a name such as jumbo or extra large. It’s good to know what the marketable name is and the count of shrimp per pound the goes with it. Good markets or grocers will label the shrimp both ways to help you determine the size you are buying. For example a Jumbo Shrimp would have 21 to 25 shrimp per pound.
EXTRA JUMBO 16/20
EXTRA LARGE 26/30
MEDIUM LARGE 36/40
EXTRA SMALL 61/70
Don’t forget to watch Paula and Bubba’s shrimp challenge this week on Get Cookin’.

Paula, I used to watch your show on Food Network a lot when I still had the TV and cable many year ago. You weren't even that big a star back then. I always love watching you cook on Youtube after I ditched my TV and cable and read your recipes on Food Network Magazines. I hope one day you can return to Food Network and the Food Network Magazine. I stop buying the magazine since you were gone.
