Is it just me OR ????

But ever since I was a small kid......when eating cold shrimp cocktail or ANY type of shrimp fried or butterflied and coated, SHRIMP tastes like scrambled eggs.

I know you will all think I'm bonkers but to ME, shrimp has that same taste!!

Do a taste test...side by side comparison. Eggs are softer of course and shrimp the firmer consistency.

But for me, with cocktail sauce or not....SHRIMP tastes like scrambled eggs!

  • I don't think they taste the same but that's me...

  • Fresh shrimp should never have a chemical or bitter taste, never heard of anyone saying it tasted like scrambled eggs to them, but we each have our own taste.
