Pre-Oiled Shrimp

Don't see the problem. I cook mine in oil.

Capt. Lyle Dehart of the shrimping vessel Rocking Angel caught oily shrimp around midnight on Friday in Bayou Severin, near Sister Lake. Shrimpers on the boat reported that their fingers stuck together when they touched the shrimp.

Officials from Wildlife and Fisheries boarded the boat on Saturday morning, noting that there was oil on the deck and the shrimp had black on their legs and heads. Samples were taken to confirm the substance is from the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

The sheen is tasty!
