Fresh Wild Caught Texas Gulf Shrimp, $9.99/lb at Raley's, Nob Hill & Bel Air

The Salinas Nob Hill store was blanketed with day-glo posters promoting fresh wild caught Texas gulf shrimp for $9.99 per pound today. They're shell-on, 16 to 25 count, jumbo size. The lady at the fish counter says they get them in a couple times each summer. A first for me though, and I bought a half-pound to try.

For dinner, I did a Cantonese style dry-fry with aromatics, rice wine and light soy sauce. The shrimp have great texture and flavor, and are a big step up from frozen, farmed shrimp.

More about these shrimp,
