Where's the best place to buy shrimp? My local fish mkt seems like it's not always the freshest.

Would be helpful to know low-end option (e.g. Chinatown mkt), as well as as if there's a higher-end option for fresh wild shrimp?

thx for the help

  1. Citeralla on B'way & 75 St. has the best that I know of ( also 75th & 3rd) Gulf shrimp, wild caught. Others are farmed and who knows what pollutant they are grown in, ie from china and indonesia. I will never eat shrimp in a restaurant unless i know where it came from.
