I am in Gulf Shores and have heard so much about the Royal Red Shrimp so we just ate at Steamers on 1st Blvd. I would like to know if theses shrimp are always impossible to peel. There were 5 of us and we each ordered a pound each. They had a great flavor but it took an act of congress to peel them. We have eaten Gulf shrimp all our lives and were wondering if this is something to do with the royal reds. Our waitress said they may have been over steamed. Is there a secret to pealing them. Would like to know if it is worth trying them somewhere else or if you always loose half the shrimp because it sticks to the shell. All help is appreciated. Really enjoyed the flavor.
