Carolina Shrimp Boil

September 11, 2017 | Vanda Lewis

Mariner’s Menu shares a recipe for a Carolina Shrimp Boil.

Fresh shrimp smell like sea water. There should be no off-odors, mustiness or chemical smells. Occasionally shrimp will smell and taste like iodine. This is not related to spoilage and is not harmful, but makes them unacceptable for eating. Certain organisms on which shrimp sometimes feed can cause this iodine effect. If you buy shrimp that smell this way, return them to your market for a refund or replacement.
