Fiesta Brand Louisiana Shrimp contains nothing more than whole, dried shrimp – free from artificial additives but rich in flavor.
Dried shrimp is an important ingredient in authentic Cajun gumbo. Not only does it add a little protein, but dried shrimp also give gumbo an intense salty flavor that complements traditional Cajun spices. To reconstitute your dried shrimp, simply soak them in warm water for 10 minutes then drain and use in your favorite Cajun-style recipes. Dried shrimp can also be enjoyed as a snack or sprinkled over your favorite salad as a crunchy treat. If you are in a pinch, Fiesta Brand Louisiana Shrimp can also be used in Asian-style recipes such as noodle soups and Pad Thai.
