Spot shrimp are the largest, and most highly-prized shrimp in Alaska. They are renowned for their slightly sweet, pure flavor and firm texture.
Like all cold water shrimp, Alaskan Spot Shrimp, (or “spots”, as they are colloquially known), have a notable sweetness. The meat of spot shrimp turns bright white, with vibrant orange highlights when cooked.
*Spot shrimp often carry a few eggs. These eggs are perfectly good to eat, or can be easily removed before cooking.
