Shrimp chips I can fry myself

Where can I buy multi-colored shrimp chips I can fry myself? This is a new thing to me. Hopefully Seafood City in Eagle Rock has them, because that is close. (I don't have time tomorrow to drive all over town.) What aisle are they in? Are they near the bagged shrimp chips? I looked today at the Little Tokyo Marketplace and I didn't see them, but maybe they wouldn't have them. Is there a particular brand anyone would suggest? Thanks!

  1. Any Chinese market will have it. Not sure about Seafood City.
    Comes in a rectangular box with colored chips on it. Don't think they're near the bagged shrimp chips.
    If you're near Echo Park go to: A Grocery Warehouse (Chinese market) on Sunset Blvd., I'm sure they will have it.
    1487 W Sunset Blvd
    Los Angeles, CA 90026
    (213) 250-1446

    1. Box will look like this picture.
      Will probably say "prawn crackers"

        Why are the prawns mating in the packaging?

      2. Any market in Chinatown will have them too, but beware Sunday is Chinese New Year and all the stores in Chinatown will be packed. That's why I recommended A Grocery Warehouse.
