Fresh Shrimp Market
“Shrimp is the fruit of the sea,” as the iconic line from Forrest Gump goes. And it’s very true – especially in San Antonio! With the Gulf of Mexico practically in our backyard, this is the perfect place to find sea food, shrimp especially. Whole sale shrimp is one of the most popular and versatile types of seafood in the US, with millions of pounds being fished every year by generations of Texas shrimpers. Abundant, sustainable, and, of course, delicious, this particular “fruit of the sea” makes south Texas a major player in the shrimp market.
Brown and white shrimp are the most common for cuisine, with brown shrimp being more forward in flavor and white shrimp sweeter and milder. Shrimp are sized and sold by the number per-pound, either whole or headless. For example, headless shrimp of 16/20 count means there are 16 to 20 headless shrimp per pound. Counts for headless shrimp typically range from 16/20 (the largest shrimp) to 41/50 (the smallest).
