Judging by what my stomach tells me, it's impossible.

It is problematic for people with thyroid problems. I take synthroid. And I eat the shite out of shrimp.

Reminds me of this song- Sipping on some sizzurp...

To answer- I'm pretty sure it would have to be more than one person could eat.

On average, 3 ounces of shrimp contain 25 micrograms of iodine


25/3 = 8.333 micrograms per ounce

National Institutes of Health guidelines say the safe upper limit for adults is 1,100


1100/8.3333/16 = 8.25 pounds

I have 5 lbs of 16/20s going on the grill tomorrow so I'll let you know if that is enough to do it

Please tell me more. For at least the last decade, anytime I eat shellfish, I get violently ill. About two hours after eating shellfish, I get very nauseous and then have extreme vomiting and diarrhea. Not good. Needless to say, I haven't eaten any shellfish in many years. But I miss it. And it has severely limited my menu choices.
