West Side Shrimp Hunt? (Where can I eat 1/2 lb. of great fresh shrimp?)

Cinnamon | Jun 3, 2008 05:52 PM

I'm not taking the new, more lean protein-oriented diet lackadaisically. I want some freshly-boiled shrimp.

Where would you recommend my checking for this in a relatively informal environment, say Venice south to Redondo not far from the coast? While I envision a bucket of already-peeled shrimp and fabulous cocktail sauce, I would peel them myself too. I'm that dedicated to the idea of fresh shrimp. (No heads, though.)

Is there any sit-down-spot worthwhile by that fresh fish market at the Redondo Pier? Is Sharkee's in Manhattan Beach not-a-sportsbar-nightmare at any particular time of day or evening (aside from Sunday brunch when it's been great)? Anything else?

Bonus points if it's not exorbitantly expensive.
