Help! How much shrimp for an engagement party for 75-80 people?

KateMW | Sep 11, 2012 07:30 AM

I have zero idea how much shrimp to order for an engagement party I'm throwing this weekend. There will be around 80 people there. We're also serving ham biscuits, beef tenderloin sandwiches, deviled eggs, tomato tarts, pimento cheese toasts and a couple of other little things like crudite and cheese straws. The theme is Southern if you can't tell. :)

Anyway, I'm having the shrimp boiled and peeled at a local restaurant but I need to go order them today and have no clue how much to get!
