Mantis Shrimp

Mantis shrimps, or stomatopods, are marine crustaceans of the order Stomatopoda.
Some species have specialized calcified “clubs” which can strike with great power, others have sharp forelimbs used to capture prey. Mantis shrimps branched from other members of the class Malacostraca around 400 million years ago.

Mantis shrimp are long-lived and exhibit complex behaviour, such as ritualised fighting

Mantis shrimp are abundant in the coastal regions of south Vietnam, known in Vietnamese as tôm tít or tôm tech. In regions such as Nha Trang, Mantis shrimps are called “ban chai”, named for its resemblance to a scrub brush.

In Japanese cuisine, the Mantis shrimp species Oratosquilla oratoria, called shako, is eaten boiled as a sushi topping, and occasionally, raw as sashimi.

In Cantonese cuisine, the mantis shrimp is known as “pissing shrimp” because of their tendency to shoot a jet of water when picked up. After cooking, Mantis shrimps flesh is closer to that of lobsters than that of shrimp, and like lobsters, their shells are quite hard and require some pressure to crack. Usually Mantis shrimps are deep fried
with garlic and chili peppers.

In the Philippines, the mantis shrimp is known as tatampal, hipong-dapa, or alupihang-dagat, and is cooked and eaten like any other shrimp. The Mantis shrimp can be steamed, boiled, grilled or dried; used with pepper, salt, and lime; fish sauce and tamarind; or fennel.
