    Shrimp is very verstatile. Steam them whole, peel and dip in your favorite sauce. Stir-fry them, grill or toss into soup. They're can also be breaded and baked or deep-fried. Asians are very good with cooking them with vairous spices--in stew or stir-frying with all kinds of blended spices. You can also make shrimp dumplings or wanton. I've a hub coming up on shrimp wantons (the video is still being processed).

    I don't really know a number of ways you can prep them, but as anglnwu said, there are certainly lots of ways!  Steamed, baked, grilled etc. They go well with lots of different spices, or with most cheeses.  Can be used in soup, pasta, on salad, on kebabs on the grill.

    Shrimp aren't common in southern Peru, but when we lived up North near Ecuador, shrimp were common and cheap. We could buy a kilo (2.2 pounds) for $1.50-$3.00 U.S., depending on the size. And they were still alive when we bought them at the market. I felt like Forrest Gump! We ate them in omelettes, po' boy sandwiches, sauteed and served over pasta, on salads, as an ingredient in cciopino, spiced and boiled in the shell, etc. etc. I actually got tired of shrimp, but now I'd love to be able to get them so readily.
