Alaska Sidestripe Shrimp

Alaska's Sidestripe shrimp are the sweetest shrimp you'll ever taste. From Alaska's icy, pure waters in Prince William Sound, these medium-sized shrimp are known for their excellent flavor and tender meat.

They're absolutely perfect for shrimp cocktails and scampi, along with a wide variety of shrimp dishes. Or better yet, just have a huge shrimp feast and invite all your friends and family.

Impress your friends with these exceptionally pure, almost sugar-like shrimp.

Note:  Sidestripe shrimp begin to carry eggs
in late summer (excellent in a scampi butter).  A percentage of fresh shrimp will have eggs.  Our frozen shrimp are generally eggless.

Shrimp Cooking Tips

Here's some general guidelines for cooking shrimp. Tips on grilling, broiling, and deep-frying.

Storing and Thawing

Sidestripe shrimp can be thawed under refrigeration about 24 hours before preparation. Shrimp blocks should be separated as they thaw to speed up thawing process. Sealed packages can be ran under cold water to speed up thawing. Shrimp are glazed with frozen water. They can be kept frozen for up to three months.

Shrimp Fishing

Sidestripe shrimp fishing is common throughout Alaska's waters, especially within Prince William Sound and Southeast Alaska. Sidestripe shrimp are caught using trawlers- large nets that are pulled behind shrimp boats. Sidestripes are slender and light pink with white bands down their body. Sidestripes are also known for their long antennules.
