I was wondering if some fish stores in Toronto were carrying either frozen or thawed spot shrimp from BC.
Thanks for any suggestions...

    The thing with spot prawns is they are rarely worthwhile even in bc and even then they are iffy. They turn to pastey mush worse than any other seafood I have ever worked with. In Vancouver we would regularly send them back with the delivery guy if many were dead. I suggest insisting they are alive and kicking or try a non tank raised or line caught product instead...

      Bill's lobster on Gerrard St often has live ones, at around $19 /lb.
