Argentine Red Shrimp

A Premium Wild Caught Shrimp

Ocean Kitchen Argentine Red Shrimp have a wonderful texture and flavor. Many food bloggers have raved about this unique shrimp caught in the South Atlantic Ocean. It is described as having a dense texture with a sweet, buttery lobster like flavor. They have also been described as similar to spot prawns. The meat when cooked is bright white with brilliant red coloring. Great for use in all your recipes that require shrimp. The texture, flavor and color profiles will showcase well with your culinary skills.


No Sodium Tripolyphoshate (STP) Used


Our shrimp is a dry pack that does not include STP. It is almost impossible to find shrimp on the market today that does not contain STP which is a chemical that causes the retention of added water to seafood products. This negatively impacts not only the flavor and texture but you also pay for weight of the added water in products that have been soaked in STP.
