*Shrimp: We usually get 21/25 per pound. This number is called the count of the shrimp, and it tells you how many individual shrimp there are in one pound of shrimp. It's read as “21 to 25 shrimp per pound”, so the smaller the number, the bigger the shrimp. Get big shrimp for this dish!
** Scallops: You'll want to get the large scallops for this dish as well. I tried it once with the petite scallops, and they just got lost in the cooking liquid. Bigger scallops will also be more tender after cooking this way.
