  1. Santa Barbara Spot Prawn with Uni at Mori.

    Technically different, but for eating purposes, tomato-tomato.

    1. re: slacker

      +1 for that dish. So delicious, with the roe still fresh and the shell dropped into a bit of red miso after.

    2. The endless shrimp promotion currently going on at Red Lobster of course!

      Ok just foolin', but are you looking for a certain style in preparation? Steamed, fried, grilled, etc.

      1. Best Deal on Shrimp......
        Tuesdays at Silky Sullivans in Fountain Valley.
        5 colossal shrimp (oxymoron) in the best homemade cocktail sauce... $4.98! 1/2 price appetizer night.... and they will let you eat shrimp cocktail until you have to roll yourself home

        1. Shrimp cocktail specifically

          1. Agree 100% -- Mastros shrimp are HUGE and so damn delicious.

            1. I recently discovered the grilled shrimp at Baby Blues BBQ in Venice on Lincoln. They are delish. They are grilled with what I'm guessing is a spice rub, then drizzled with a little bit of what seems to be a spicy mayo and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. They are just amazing.

              1. The botan ebi at Urasawa, when in season. Best shrimp I've ever had, outside of Australia.
