And spaghetti sauce with shrimp IS very good. But the kicker is the adjective "unpeeled." I don't mind peeling shrimp myself, but I hate picking them out of my sauce-covered spaghetti to do it.
Apparently some people eat the shells. I have encountered a Chinese dish called Crystal Shrimp where the idea was obviously to eat them with the shell on. (Didn't order that again!)

When I cook with raw shrimp I shell them completely including the tail fins that a lot of people leave on. Except if I'm just boiling them - then it's easier to shell after they're cooked.
