Had both last night, and the shrimp with the head still attached was by far much more tasty.

Has GD noticed a difference?

And I don't know how to do a poll.

Heads off, but fried and eaten separately. MMMMM!

If you eat shrimp with the head on, you'll never have to prove your courage in any other way.

I generally buy head off shrimp when I'm feeling lazy or am going to just fry them. Head on shrimp is the shit for making seafood stock. My cioppino recipe is

I don't buy any seafood unless I'm within 50 miles of the coast though. Now that I'm in middle GA, it's a lot of striper and trout I catch myself. I miss Savannah seafood.

Boiled. Head on or off, but boiled. Need lots of red sauce, too. And a cold beer.

Head off. Boiled 90 seconds with Zatarains. Dipped in home made cocktail sauce.

Never, ever grill shrimp. That's for tourists.

Mmmmmm sweet shrimp

Heads on. Horrified my wife the first time she ever saw them cooked that way. She can eat almost as much as I can now, though.

YES!

Shrimp heads are delicious. Nom, nom, nom.

Off. I love shrimp but if its staring back at me it proves difficult to eat knowing its a cockroach of the sea.

I love shrimp. Had no idea people eat it with the head still on..lol I don't think I'm interested in doing that.. creeps me the fuck out

What you are were probably two different varieties and/or age... Head on doesn't explain difference in taste. And head off, butterflied and fried with St Augustine pink sauce is the only way to go. If you are ever in St Augustine, do yourself a favor and hit up O'Steens.

the hardest part to eat when you're hungry.

This thread is a year too late. We were at St. Augustine last summer. Now I have another reason to go back.

When I buy head on shrimp, I pull the head, take the top shell off, bread and fry the "grasshoppers". Taste like softshell cra s.
Link Posted: 1/18/2015 9:58:12 PM EST

Off... then use those heads to make shrimp stock.

On our honeymoon on Oahu my wife and I bought shrimp at a shrimp farm. They cooked it on the side of the road. I ordered mine steamed and she got hers sweet and sour. She flipped when she saw the heads. I had to cut the heads off. She said the little eyes were looking at her.

I love tempura / fried shrimp heads at a sushi joint.

Fried, heads on. Anything else, off.

Head on for a boil or a gumbo, but it's damn near impossible to find here in Ohio.

How about crawdads? You guys eat the tail and suck the head too? I've eaten the entire crawdad a few times, but I mostly just like to eat the tails.

I eat the small mudbug tails whole as well.

There is no need to peel the little ones.
