Why are Cooked Shrimps Cheaper than Raw Ones?

Cooked shrimps and boiled corns

I went to Tony’s seafood market and deli, the biggest seafood market in my city, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, this morning.

I planned to buy one or two pounds of shrimps to cook with a recipe which I found in a blog.

Just to let you know that Louisiana has several kinds of shrimps. Four commercial values are:
- white shrimp (Litopenaeus setiferus)
- brown shrimp (Farfantepenaeus aztecus)
- seabob shrimp (Penaeus sp)
- pink shrimp (Farfantepenaeus duorarum)

Louisiana produces around 100 million pounds of all kind shrimps per year, mainly from the Gulf of Mexico.

The shrimp industries provided 15 thousand jobs and greatly impact on Louisiana economic. They bring about US$ 1.3 billion annually to Louisiana state.

Cooked shrimps

When I was in the market, I saw both the raw and cooked shrimps. The shrimps either plain cooked or cooked with recipes.

What surprising me was the price. Cooked shrimps are US$ 9.99 per pound, whereas raw ones are US$ 11.99 per pound.

Cooked shrimps are two dollar cheaper than raw ones. Why? I really don’t know the answer.

I decided to buy cooked shrimps together with boiled corn. Ready to go and to eat.

Make me wonder, did you find in your place where cooked things are cheaper than raw things?

  8. That is interesting. I wonder if the better quality shrimp are sold uncooked so the ones that are sold cooked are not as good.

  14. Bisa jadi mba udang yang dimasak kadar airnya dah tinggi jadi lebih berat ketika ditimbang. Tentunya jadi lebih murah.
    Coba dihitung dalam 1 pon ada brp ekor udang matang dan brp ekor udang mentah

  20. Por lo general los camarones cocidas no las compro por que si no tienes cuidado en la receta se te vuelven como plástico. Buen provecho.

  21. Barangkali ada solusi saya kalo makan Udang di Malang cenderung muntah, tapi kalo di Lombok alhamdulillah biasa saja. Apa sebabnya ya?

  22. I agree there is a big difference in price. You will think the cook will be more since is half way done with the work of cleaning and cooking. I always prefer to purchase raw for my recipes.

  28. This is my fave. I wish there would be cooked shrimps here in local supermarkets.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Fresh shrimps can be sold for a limited amount of time while cook shrimp last way longer because cooking and adding preservatives add them shelf life. I prefer raw shrimps and I rarelly buy them from big commercial stores, I prefer local vendors that acquire them fresh that day.
    I noticed now that altough we were commenting on your posts very often I wasn't following you yet on GFC, I am doing it now so it will be even more easy to read our posts.
    Have a fantastic day!
