How much fish did you eat so far this year? Ahem, Shrimp...




Pre- Covid , shrimp was the Number One Seafood Consumed by Americans ….We averaged 4.6 pounds per person! (1) Then a lot of gatherings got canceled. Did shrimp consumption dip? Yes. It is no fun gorging on a shrimp ring by yourself. But now you should be ready to dip your shrimp in a tangy sauce again this summer 2021 at some ones party. Just promise that you will not eat a whole box of crackers just to finish the tuna...due to the tarragon dip.

Many gatherings got cancelled ,so did shrimp dip? You should be ready to dip your shrimp in a tangy sauce again this summer 2021.
