Expert Tips

  • Fresh and frozen shrimp are sold by a descriptive size name, like jumbo or large, and by “count,” or number per pound. The larger the shrimp, the lower the count. Size and count vary throughout the United States.
  • When grating the zest of citrus fruit for this calypso shrimp recipe, make sure to only grate the top layer of the peel, not the pith (the white part underneath), which tends to be bitter.
  • You can make this calypso shrimp dish ahead of time; cover and refrigerate the cooked shrimp separately from the salsa. Just before serving, arrange on plates.
  • You can use red beans instead of black beans if you like.
