I've been trying to browse through recipes and noticed that when I enter a search on "shrimp" it would tell me there are around 7,000 recipes, but it will only present six pages of about 15 recipes per page. Using the "filter by" feature results in the same circumstance. There may be 3,000 in a category, but the search results only allow me to see six pages. Is there some way to see all recipes? Yes, I am that masochistic!

Actually shrimp only yields 1,000 recipes. It was typing in chicken that yields 7,000.

For any ingredient, once you type in the word at the search bar, you will get a page. On the left there should be an option "Collections". If you click on that it will sometimes allow you to go further and see all recipes. For instance if you search "Chicken", it gives you 164 collections, one of which is chicken recipes which will show you over 4,000 recipes.

Their search engine probably limits how many recipes one search can return so as not to slow down response times when thousands are using it. From a practical standpoint, you would be better off to use the advanced search feature inputting a few ingredients you want (or don't want) and get a smaller number to sift through.
