Now that the season is underway, if you want to get the best, freshest local shrimp, cut out the retailers and go straight to the docks where the shrimp is unloaded. The South Carolina Shrimp Marketing Association has a list of Lowcountry docks on their website.
C.A. Magwood's off of Shem Creek is my usual stop, and they are currently selling heads-on white shrimp for $4.00 a pound and heads off for $6.50.
We have a few more weeks left in the white roe shrimp season, then the smaller, sweeter brown shrimp season will take over.
