Maine shrimp

Sarah_G Dec 9, 2010 06:09 AM

I'm wondering if anyone knows of a good place to get Maine shrimp. A friend of mine in Boston told me that Maine shrimp is in season and it only lasts for about six weeks I believe, which means the season here would be much shorter since we aren't in the coast region. If anyone knows of a market or restaurant to get some at please let me know!

    You may have to ask for Labrador, or Gulf of St. Lawrence shrimp in Canada. Similar quality, limited season. Department of Fisheries website should help.
    Sometimes Sobey's has small frozen but pre-cooked Labrador shrimp which are quite good.
