3 oz is about the size of a deck of cards or a bar of soap.

"41-60" means 41-60 shrimp per lb, so prob between 8-11 shrimp is 3 oz

February 29, 2012 6:42 PM
My guess would be about 12, but the math ACG did makes complete sense

I always buy 1 lb bags (there are 4 in our family) so I know we are all getting 4 oz if I divide it evenly. That way it doesn't matter what size I buy :)

Thats why one one of the most important things is a set of scales. Weigh them it will state on bag oz eguals so many calories

16 oz, in a pound. "41-60" means the count per pound.

Average that out to 50 per pound.

50/16 = 3.125 (Shrimp per Ounce)

3.125 x 3oz = 9.375 shrimp for three ounces

So true!!! I think I paid like $10 for mine...
I was surprised at how wrong guessing could be...

This is sort of a trick question. the answer lies in the size of the shrimp.for example, 16/20 size refers to how many shrimp are in a pound. This means that their are approximately 18 shrimp in a pound. Each shrimp would be slightly less than one oz.If the shrimp were 41/50 size. Average 48 pieces would weigh 1 pound approximately. 48pcs / 16 oz = 3pcs per oz.If the shrimp were gigantic 4/6 size.4 in a pound = 4oz each5 in a pound 3.3 oz each.6 in a pound, 2.25oz each.You get the math.

I had a 12 oz package of the medium large shrimp and it said it served 4 with 3 oz each so I divided them into four bags. It was an even 10 shrimp per bag!
