We've sometimes eaten shrimp in "nice" restaurants, and found that the shrimp had a slight iodine taste -- which we had thought meant it may be getting a bit "past". Axe-u-lee, that iodine taste you sometimes get from wild caught Gulf shrimp is due to their diet and the shrimps age when its caught. It occurs when the shrimp are harvested in the late Fall, mostly. Most of the shrimp for sale in the U.S. now-a-daze are farm raised, instead of wild caught, in large fish farms in Central America or Asia. In some countries, they are fed antibiotics that are banned in the U.S. ;-(I only buy my shrimp at the seafood stalls in Westwego (See; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C5YjR6XDFGI ) during the season. I know that they are fresh and I get them at a great price.;-)C.J.V. - don’t eat no imported shrimp, catfish or tilapia, me
