I always look for seafood caught in the waters of the USA. If I can't find local shrimp (usually from neighboring NC), then I buy Emeril Lagasse's brand of frozen shrimp, which is wild-caught in the USA. This shrimp is delicious served with sauteed zucchini slices topped with parmesan cheese and a simple salad.
