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 heal 200 Life Points when consumed. Players will stop burning shrimps at level 33 Cooking. Shrimps give the same experience as Crayfish when cooked but often differ in price, making them potentially more cost-effective depending on the market.

Assuming no burning, each raw shrimp cooked would yield a profit/loss of -22 coins.

Wikipedia has an article about:


  • When Tutorial Island was accessible, the first shrimp cooked was always burnt.
  • Shrimp are one of the best food items when 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.
