    I've never seen "cervettes grises" in Montreal. Although I've never done a thorough search.

    Just FYI, it might not go by the name grey shrimp, which is a literal translation of the French and Flemish names. You might have better luck asking for brown shrimp.

      Just thinking of those "Plateau Fruits de Mer" at Chez Justine in Cannes. Sooo good would love to be able to buy them here.

        Well, if you find them let me know. I remember peeling buckets of those as a kid. And they make the most amazing fumée.
