1lb Wild BC Humpback Shrimp Tails (King Shrimp)
Humpback Shrimp are also sometimes referred to as “king shrimp” prized for their sweet flavour and firm texture. They are the smallest of the three main local shrimp varieties with side stripes being the medium-sized and spot prawns being the largest. Humpback Shrimp have a very similar flavour to spot prawns though given their size they tend to lend themselves better to dishes such as shrimp scampi, seafood fettucini, ceviche or shrimp tacos. These little morsels of perfection also come shell-on, frozen in saltwater.
*cooking tip – we recommend leaving the shells on while cooking (that’s where all the flavour is!) and then peeling after. Save the shells for stock or simmer them in butter then strain and serve over popcorn.
