Shrimps detail
Shrimps (irregular plural of Shrimp) are a food item, that can be obtained by cooking Raw shrimps at level 1 Cooking, and are useful for increasing both Cooking and Fishing levels when players start out. They will also heal up to 200 Life Points. Using raw shrimps on a fire or range will give cooked shrimps, which can then be consumed. Inexperienced players will burn a lot of shrimps at first, but as cooking level increases, the odds of burning decreases. Players will stop burning shrimps at level 33 Cooking. This may be the best way for new players to level Cooking up, because cooking shrimps grants the same amount of experience as cooking crayfish, but profit is gained instead of a loss.

Assuming no burning, each raw shrimp cooked would yield a profit/loss of -6 coins.

Wikipedia has an article about:


  • When Tutorial Island was accessible, the first shrimp cooked was always burnt.
  • Shrimp are one of the best foods considering the ratio of LP healed to the cost.
  • Shrimp and Anchovies look exactly alike, except for their colour. In reality, however, shrimps are crustaceans and anchovies are fish with little resemblance to one another.
