Gamberetto - an Italian word for shrimp. (p. gambaretti)
Gamberetti or shrimps are so delicious and my favorite way of preparing it is with spicy marinara sauce and with some mushrooms.
Did you know that:
Over 1 billion pounds of shrimp is consumed each year in the U.S., almost 90% of it from Asia and Central America. (Food Arts, 6/2009)
About 80% of shrimp consumed in the United States each year is eaten in restaurants.
Some 40% of the shrimp eaten in the U.S. is farmed raised shrimp from Asia and South America.
World shrimp production is over 5 billion pounds a year, about 20 % of which is farmed.
