Where oh where have the uncooked shrimp gone?

Oh, where oh where could they be?

I was determined to make the baked shrimp and tomatoes dish last night. So determined that I sent Manatee on a mission: find me some uncooked shrimp. He tried three grocery stores and NONE of them have uncooked shrimp.

For you Madisonians-where can you find uncooked shrimp? For everyone else, where do you find uncooked shrimp?

There are tons of cooked shrimp out there but that only works for shrimp cocktail. It doesn't work if you want to put them in a dish and cook it yourself.

To make a long story short, we were forced to order in pizza last night. It was a hardship, I know. But uncooked shrimp, I won't be thwarted. I will find you and I will cook you and then I will blog about it.


  1. I have gotten uncooked shrimp at SuperTarget in the frozen section, by the frozen tilapia, salmon, etc. They are sooo much better than the already cooked/frozen ones!

  2. Not in Madison right now, but Trader Joe's is my source for frozen uncooked shrimp.

  3. Gosh, that's unbelievable! I find uncooked frozen shrimp in every grocery store I go to! Maybe Chicagoans enjoy much more the shrimpie life than Madisoneans? I'm sorry :(
