Lotsa Local Transexual Shrimp!

kaleokahu | May 6, 2013 12:28 PM

Although the season lasts out into October, this weekend I found an abundance of shrimp-y deliciousness, and at quite low prices. The so-called coonstripe shrimp ("dock" shrimp in Oregon) are in, sweet, full, good-sized, and easy to peel. The peelins' make excellent stock, too. Not exactly transexual, but protandrous hermaphrodite--by age 3 all these shrimp are female.

Found them fresh from the cooker at several places, ranging from $4.25/ to $5.95/pound.
