shrimp - side stripe - season? etc

Georgia Strait | Dec 12, 2012 10:38 AM

i know some commercial people are still up north nr rupert / panhandle (maybe the quota wasn't met earlier) - fishing for side-strip shrimp - i saw some of them (they freeze them on board the ship) - they have roe (eggs) etc - and are about the size of a "pinkie" finger - we simmered some and peeled them - nice and firm, gentle sweet taste - what does one use them for?

and how do they compare to spot prawns? I suppose these have a gentler, sweeter taste compared to the spots - not sure what the spot excitement is about ... then again, i'm an old local yokel so we had to go out and fish etc for food.
