- A shrimp's size is measured by the number of individual shrimp it takes to make up a pound. We used medium-size shrimp labeled 41/50 in this recipe, meaning there are between 41 and 50 of this size shrimp in a pound. The description of size can vary, depending on the market.
- To take some of the “bite” out of the raw onion topping, place your onions in a strainer, and run them under cold water for a few seconds.
