Mex Wild Shrimp

Looking for wild caught Mex shrimp - IQF - U15's, 4-5 Lb bags. Anywhere. Costco doesn't count - theirs are farmed in Vietnam.

  1. I'm pretty sure I saw Mexican shrimp at Fish King (Glendale) last weekend. It was either there or Whole Foods, I just don't remember (I was in both places but not shopping for shrimp). Both places have phones.

      Even if Fish King doesn't have something they can usually get it for you when they go to the markets. You just need to give them a day or 2 notice. They know the markets pretty well and can even let you know if they show up at all or in what season.

    2. I see Santa Monica Seafood has wild Brown shrimp from the Gulf of Mexico but caught in US waters for sale:

      1. try sprouts. i'm pretty firm on wild caught shrimp, myself, and that's where i find good shrimp at good prices most frequently.

        1. I guess not. Oh well, thanks anyway.
