Royal Red Shrimp

Anyone tried these? They are deep water shrimp from the Gulf. They have a taste that reminds one of spiny lobster. I'm hooked!

i've had them here in the northeast, but i didn't know you could get them from the gulf. dw recently had a royal red shrimp cocktail that reminded me of the scene in "the blues brothers'.

it makes sense that since cold water lobsters taste better, cold (deep) water shrimp would follow suit. and since gulf shrimp are the best there is, i can only imagine how good deepwater gulf shrimp would be.

After doing some research on them, appearently they only come from the Gulf. Maybe they only consider them commercially viable from the Gulf?

The only place I've found them here is at Penn Dutch Meats. I picked some up today.

it seems they are mostly commercially fished in the gulf, but you can get them in stonington connecticut and brunswick georgia.

in fact, royal reds are also called stonington reds.

the pages are old, but both are still in business.

I love Royal Reds! The Lobster Place 212-255-5672( fantastic quality of most everything) in NYC just started carrying them heads on fresh and they ship anywhere. Joe Patti's in Pensicola has them as well heads on or headless and a lot of other great shrimp and seafood in general including Scamp (Bobby Flays favorite fish).
