Cold-water shrimp are a true delicacy, with their bright-pink color and firm, juicy texture. From their origin in the ice-cold and clear waters of the North Atlantic and Arctic Oceans, the cold-water shrimp grow slowly until reaching full size at 6 years. Due to the slow growth flavors and texture are given time to fully develop. The sweet and savory flavors combined with a juicy bite offer a full flavor experience. The shrimp are high in protein and low in fat, making them a healthy choice.
Shell-on cold-water shrimp are cooked and frozen at sea within 3 hours from catch. The fast processing locks in the natural flavor and the crisp, moist texture. Gentle thawing in the refrigerator best preserves the ultimate freshness of the shrimp.

The cold-water shrimp are uniform in size with a consistent quality. Their fresh taste is ideally complimented by mild, fatty or acidic flavors. The shrimp lend themselves well to cold dishes including salads, sandwiches and appetizers or as toppings.
