How many shrimp per person to use?

a pound of shrimp feeds 4 people

It is widely known the fact that fish counters usually sell at least two sizes of shrimp — medium and large.   It is important to know the fact that a pound of shrimp feeds 4 people as an entrée.   There are some simple calculations you have to make.  For example, there are 30 or even 35 medium shrimp/lb -8 per person, large (20-25/lb): 6 per person.  Keep in mind that smaller shrimps are not very impressive in the presentation or flavor department.
