So, what is whiteleg shrimp?

Whiteleg shrimp, scientifically known as Litopenaeus vannamei, is a type of shrimp that has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its mild and slightly sweet flavor. These shrimp are native to the Pacific coast of South America but are now commonly farmed in countries such as Thailand, Vietnam, and Ecuador. They are usually sold in their raw, peeled, and deveined form and are often used in a variety of dishes such as stir-fries, salads, and pasta. Whiteleg shrimp is also a good source of protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and essential vitamins and minerals, making it a nutritious addition to any meal.
