Shako, Mantis Shrimp

Here you are ! This is a new item. Mantis Shrimp.
But it is not shrimp group.
I can say the texture is like between shrimp and crab.
I like shako. I have no ides of the meaning of shako, but pronunciation is same as garage in Japanese. So sushi lovers call it as garage.

Taka - I found some frozen mantis shrimp at Buford Highway Farmer's Market but I'm a little unsure about how to prepare them. Did these come to you pre-shelled or did you take the shell off yourself? Were they blanched first? Any prep-help is appreciated!
