What are Sidestripe Shrimp?

Our Sidestripe shrimp are harvested in the coastal inlets and fjords of northern British Columbia and are second in size to the spot prawn. They have distinctive long antennas and stripes along their abdomen for which they are named. Organic Ocean Sidestripe Shrimp are caught using a beam trawl and are rated Good Alternative by the Monterey Aquarium Seafood Watch program. Our shrimp are immediately sorted and graded for size, tailed, rinsed and flash frozen at extremely low temperatures in brine-filled containers in order to preserve their firm texture. 

How do you prepare Sidestripe Shrimp Tails

For best results, remove from tub, place in colander and bowl and thaw in the refrigerator overnight so water is allowed to drain. Turning bright pink when cooked, our sidestripe shrimp tails are prized for their remarkably sweet yet delicate flavor. Cooking only takes one to two minutes or they may be eaten raw, either sashimi-style or marinated in a light citrus as ceviche. The eggs are considered a delicacy and egg-bearing shrimp may be eaten raw or cooked with the eggs intact. Chefs will often wash the egg-bearing shrimp over a fine mesh strainer to catch the roe which is then used as a garnish. The roe has a mild flavor, and provides a great textural experience, like slightly savory Pop Rocks. Can’t make up your mind on which shrimp and prawns you like? Why not try our Prawn Pack - You’re Shrimply The Best Edition for a full assortment.

Fun Fact – these shrimp are hermaphroditic – They spend the first two years of their life as males, and then morph to females to produce young.

These prawns are wonderful!

The side stripe shrimp are sweet and flavourful. A quick dip in the frypan is all they need.

Ocean Organic side-stripe shrimp a must try delicacy

These side-stripe shrimp are amazing. We served them at a family dinner and all agreed it was better than a 5 star restaurant. We fried them lightly in our home-made nut-free pest sauce. Be careful not to overcook. 3mins is all that’s needed! They were shipped to us in Victoria BC in dried ice with awesome environmentally friendly packing. Fantastic product delivered by a fantastic company.

Side stripe shrimp are the best

Just had our first meal with the side-stripe shrimp we ordered from Organic Ocean. They arrived in Victoria in perfect condition. These shrimp are actually better than prawns. Incredibly sweet. Make the best ceviche.
