Fresh local spot prawns in SEA?

Anyone seen them around for sale at a fish store? I picked some (cooked) up at the Skagit Fish Market on the way back from the Anacortes ferry today for $14.99 and they were fantastic. They were from the San Juans, and all I see in the city is previously frozen, Alaska spots. I want to sit down with a giant bucket of these.

    Hi, christy:

    You should move to Skagit County and find someone with the license. You ever get to Bow? There's a licensee (his GF actually) who sets up shop by Midway Antiques, when the haul is in. Spots, shrimps, it's all good and half the price of the markets. You go.

      Lam's Seafood has them in now ($11.00/lb). If you haven't been here yet, GO! Their live Dungeness is always the cheapest in town and once a year they even get live King.

          Call Tim's Seafood in Kirkland to find out if they have them. Fresh and yummy if they have them!
