Frozen Shrimp

Looking to purchase high quality frozen shrimp in Cape Cod area, any suggestions?

  1. If they must be frozen, then Stop & Shop, Roche Bros, Shaws, or BJs are the only places I can think of. They all carry 1 or 2 pound bags, cooked and uncooked, at various sizes. Fish Markets will have them thawed, but may sell you a 5 pound block frozen if you ask.

    1. Be careful and read the bag of shrimp in the markets. They load them up with STP. which is used in soaps and additives. it keeps the shrimp plump but is bad for you. plus it raised havoc on the flavor. so just read the ingredients.
