Wild American Shrimp? Any markets carry them?
Hi there. I keep hearing that certified Wild American Shrimp or wild caught shrimp has a superior taste to the farmed shrimp that is so readily available out here. Has anyone come across any? I looked online at wildamericanshrimp.com and they have a few online resources but you have to buy a minimum of 5lbs. which is fine but the shipping is an additional 50+ dollars. Anyway, if anyone has come across any, let me know. Thank you.
Ocean Garden (OG1) Wild is available all over LA , but only in 5 lb frozen blocks.
U15 or 16-20wild, are my favorite sizes.
Lax-C on N. Main (just off Alameda where Phillip's is located)
G&S in Vernon (323 581 6161) ask for will call.

In general, the quality of shrimp, wild or farm-raised, is best if you get it in the frozen blocks. Aside from fresh, as in still kickin', you can't do better... For the fact that they offer their shrimp only in the frozen blocks says alot about them. You may also want to compare it some time with the many frozen shrimp products at places like 99 Ranch - I don't recall the sizes but the amount of choices and prices are amazing. Also, if worse comes to worse, you can buy live - just make sure they're kickin' and not ready to kick...
