Maine Shrimp -- Has the season started?

Wondering if anyone has seen Maine shrimp yet in any Boston-area markets. I'm craving shrimp and grits . . . TIA

  1. The season started on 12/1, so maybe mid-week at fishmongers if we are lucky.

    1. I remember last year I was at Courthouse Seafood and they weer still jumping. Now, that's fresh.

          I usually buy mine at Whole Foods but I'm sure other hounds will have alternate sources.

          Can't wait!

          Please report sitings. I don't have a car so I have to plan ahead to get some.

            Thanks - so happy about this. A new perk of moving to Boston!

              BZ -- I always get mine at Whole Foods too ... keep your eye out or call the Cambridge Street location (that's closest to you, right?) and ask them.

              Not quite Boston proper, but Wulf's Seafood near Coolidge Corner in Brookline has lovely Maine shrimp, typically laden with tasty roe to boot.

            3. We've moved the discussion of recipes to the Home Cooking board, at

              1. They had an appetizer special featuring ME shrimp at Sorrelina this evening. No one at our table tried it though.
