- DescriptionMaine shrimp are small, sweet cold-water shrimp with a delicate flavor and sweet soft meat. If you're a shrimp fan, you owe it to yourself to try them. We think they're the best peel-and-eat shrimp going. Steam them (shell on) for just a minute, chill, and then serve with cocktail sauce or a mustard-mayonnaise mixture.
For best results, rinse under cold running water and pat dry before preparing according to your favorite method.
