Shrimp Jerky !!!! Q-View

Discussion in 'Making Jerky' started by bobdog46, Jun 26, 2015.

  1. I got a wild hair and decided to try something new " Shrimp Jerky" !!   After peeling & deveining the jumbo shrimp, I ended up with 5 lbs of shrimp.  I seasoned and cured the shrimp the same as I would beef or venison. I used a spicey cajun seasoning and cure #1, put in ziplock bag in the fridge for 24 hrs. I hung the shrimp in the smoker using toothpicks.  It came out great !!!!!

    Interesting.  I commend you for thinking outside the box.  How would you describe the flavor/texture?
  3. More tender than beef - but still had a little "chew" to it.  Flavor was awesome !!
  4. A bit expensive though -   Shrimp @ $ 6.99 a lb
