Yay!

My favorite Maine seafood! I love those delicious little Gulf of Maine shrimp!
They are excellent steamed, fried, (my favorite...beer batter yum!) stir fried, bisques, soups, salads, casseroles, newburghs, or a hundred other ways. New England fishermen landed some 5 million pounds of these tasty little crustaceans in 2008, 90% of them in Maine waters. They expect this year to be even better.
Buy 'em up! Peel them and freeze them, they freeze great! Or buy them all picked out. They should be quite reasonable in a couple of weeks! Our next Amvets dinner will be fried shrimp and I can't wait!

I had a dog once named EBI. She was very tiny like a shrimp. I love japanese sushi too.

Oh, and I love shrimp. Thanks for the heads up.

Funny that you should mention this, I was just reading a couple of weeks ago about the unique, small pink shrimp that are harvested in Maine. Everyone always talks about the lobsters and I was curious if Maine had shrimp to go along with them, so I Googled it.

I guess if you're brave enough to stick around for the nasty Winter, then you deserve the delicious shrimp...

Hi Dreamy,
I let go of bravery 3 yrs ago, I still get more than my fair share of fresh Maine shrimp though. There's a snowbird guy from Portland, Maine that has a Maine seafood place right here on Placida Rd.
He's only here from Oct - May. He's right in Portland selling seafood the rest of the year. Good gig.
Maine shrimp are much better than any local shrimp found in the warm waters down here.

I love the tasty, tiny Maine shrimp.
So glad that Hannaford sells them frozen year round!
Enjoy Maineah...I do envy you drowning in shrimp for the next few
months.

Hi back,

Judging by your location coordinates, I am ssssooooooooo jealous. I'm guessing that you are already living the dream that I hope to turn into reality next year, which is spending Summers in Maine and Winters in Florida.

Call me a weenie, but I have no desire to do the cold thing any longer. I'm not into Winter activities such as skiing etc., so to me sitting around in the cold waiting on Summer is like wasting your days. And, life is too short to waste them...

I Really want some now. I'm going to see if they're selling them in Brunswick on Thursday. They MUST be out fishing for them as it's nice weather. I pick them out myself until I get sick of doing it then I buy them picked out. I'm going to fill the freezer with them this winter!. No deer, I have to fill it with something....

Weenie-schmeenie...I call you smart

I love shrimp in pretty much anything. Nicki's Diner in Bangor makes a mean vegetable stir-fry, and I always have them add shrimp.

That's right. While all of you are sitting around freezing and discussing the Volvo-Line crunchies, me and Island Mermaid will be safely across the Frost-Line eating some little, pink imported Maine shrimpies in the sun.
