Royal Reds

The most delicate of our native shrimp species, with the softest texture and sweetest flavor. Will cook twice as quickly as other shrimp.

Royal Reds (Pleoticus Robustus) are perhaps the softest and most delicate of all our native shrimp species. This vibrant red shrimp never sees the light of day, preferring the cold dark depths out at the edge where the gently sloping bottom of the Gulf drops abruptly off the continental shelf. Depths from 1,200 ft. to over a half mile down are the home to this sweetest of all shrimp. Steamed, grilled, or sautéed these sweet shrimp are delicious. Due to their more delicate texture, cook times for these shrimp must be cut almost in half. Normally they are produced from early March through June and range from the Desoto Canyon off of Pensacola all the way along the shelf's edge to the Dry Tortugas in the Florida Keys.
