? re: converting weight of shrimp in shell to shrimp meat

I'm planning to make a shrimp recipe/spread that calls for 2 lbs of medium shrimp that you then shell,devein and chop. If I were to just buy shrimp meat, how would I convert the 2 lbs. I made this last year and it came out looser than I think it should have (it's molded). I didn't think about it till afterwards but I used 2 lbs of shrimp meat. Of course all shrimp is frozen (at least here in the midwest) so I see no point in doing the extra work of shelling/deveining. Can anyone help me? Thanks, Chris
