Also known as Northern Shrimp
Often referred to as "Northern shrimp" or "Pink shrimp," this seafood delicacy thrives in the chilly waters off Canada's coasts. Their habitat contributes to their distinct taste and texture, setting them apart from their warm water counterparts.
Canadian cold water shrimp are often described as having a sweeter, juicier and more tender profile than other varieties. Because of their exceptional taste, they're a fantastic choice for an array of dishes, from a simple sauté to a hearty seafood pasta. You can even add them to pizza. Or, snack on them cold for a true taste of the sea.
