Live Shrimp???? Other then the fish market?

Hey everyone my favorite sushi restaurant always has live shrimp "the ones still squirming with the heads still intact." I'm sure if I traveled down to the fish market on a regular basis I could find them but I don't have time for this. I know there are butchers for meat but are their fish stores that would carry these? I live in the valley but I will go for a drive if I can find them within 30-40 minutes.

  1. Any Asian Market will have a tank or two of the striped large shrimp that you get in the sushi places.
