I have bought a boatload of shrimp over the years - mostly headless azul grande from Claudia for years. Today no AG but super grande browns with heads for 160. I use the heads and peelings to make a shrimp broth for noodles, etc so OK. Got them home and started cleaning - and surprise - a big lime green track is almost every one. I'm familiar with the usual black tracks - but hardly any had one. He swears they're not farmed - maybe they were all on a green lawn somewhere under the sea? Or imported?


Any shrimp experts here?

I wouldn't buy shrimp in the summer months. Out of season.

I noticed the same thing. All of them had green innards. They were really good though.

It is what they are feeding on more than likely plankton.

That is their intestine full of bile right?

If so, it should be removed prior to cooking, imo.

It may be shrimp roe, eggs. If it turns orange when cooked than that would confirm that it is roe and I consider it delicious
