Crustacean

It’s a macrura swimming crustacean.

It’s usually smaller than prawns, but their main difference is that their body and legs are longer. Shrimps are born males and they change their sex 2 or 4 years after. It mainly lives in the Mediterranean and the Southern Atlantic, in non-rocky beds between 50 and 200 meters deep. They can be bought cooked, fresh and frozen.

It can be prepared just like a prawn.
