About the Holiday

National Shrimp Day is a day to celebrate those crustaceans that are delicious served in different ways and in many recipes. On this day, celebrating is simple -- enjoy lots of shrimp, but make sure that you have plenty to share. “I'll slip an extra shrimp on the barbie for you!”

"Anyway, like I was sayin', shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that's about it."
   -Benjamin Buford "Bubba" Blue from the movie Forrest Gump.[1]
