When it comes to frozen shrimp, skip weighing them. Instead, note that in addition to being labeled small, medium, large, etc., shrimp are labeled with the range of pieces per pound, such as 26/30 for large shrimp. This number (which is clearly marked on the packaging) represents raw, unfrozen weight, so if your recipe calls for 8 ounces of large shrimp, simply count out 15 shrimp—half of the top of the range.
