I am new to the area and I love shrimp. Where is the best shrimp in Houston at? I am NOT looking for a restaurant, by the way.


Hey Allen, welcome.  I guess the first question to ask is in which part of town are you currently living?  As the best seafood is found over in Clear Lake and Galveston areas - fresh from the Gulf and easy to buy in bulk from the area shrimpers/processors.  However, if you live in Cypress that may not be an easy trip for you.  In that case you may be better off buying at one of the nicer area grocers?

Kemah (there are many places...) or Dickinson.  Hillman's in Dickinson has been there forever, and own their own boats.




They do oysters too, in season.  Last week, they had live crab, live crawfish (I don't think they caught those...), a couple of kinds of fish, shrimp (~$8/pound for the biggest (whole), I think), crab ($1 each).
