Apr 30, 2009: Hood Canal Shrimp Bonanza

Store News

We spent the entire day processing a couple of boat loads of Hood Canal spot prawns. Now we're totally exhausted, but excited about the super tasty shrimp. If you want to experience the thrill of fresh shrimp (and that sounds sarcastic, but you'll understand once you try them), you can buy them either cooked or raw in our retail store. If you're nowhere near Lilliwaup, you can have raw shrimp shipped to you on Monday, May 4th. If we have any shrimp left after Monday we're going to freeze them. Order shrimp online at www.hamahamastore.com, or by calling 888-877-5844. Available...
