I'm not usually much of a seafood fan unless I am on the coast because I like my seafood FRESH. I can handle shrimp, though.
In Utah, it is recommended to buy it frozen, since the shrimp at the deli counter has most likely been frozen before being thawed for sale - so the frozen shrimp is probably fresher. Also, if it is available, choose shrimp that has not been peeled or deveined because cleaning before freezing can cause a loss of texture and flavor. If you are worried about the source of your shrimp, look for shrimp from North America that has been certified by an independent agency or that carries the Best Aquaculture Practices label. This will ensure that your shrimp is healthy both for the environment and for you!
One of the most well-known restaurants to get fresh seafood in Utah is Market Street Grill & Broiler. They share several recipes on their website and in their restaurants. One that is great for this time of year is their Grilled Asparagus and Shrimp Vinaigrette.
