Want to find the best shrimp? Peggy Issitt, Rockport Aquarium Education Center, encourages everyone to “buy local.”

This time of year, you will find both Gulf and Bay shrimp at any one of Rockport-Fulton’s reputable seafood markets. Gulf shrimp are usually larger and pinker than Bay shrimp. However for this recipe, Peggy recommends Bay shrimp which offer a bigger, “sweeter taste in a small package.” - Kirsten
