Up first, the venues:
Boiling Crab: this place has multiple locations in so-cal. They're the kind of spot that includes not only a bib (which is essential) but serves their servings of shrimp deliciousness out of a plastic bag. This saucy shrimp dish is drenched in garlic and spices. You'll be hard-pressed to find someone who tries Boiling Crab and doesn't love their "bag-o-shrimp" goodness!
San Pedro Fishmarket: this Fishmarket has it all. Located at the wharf in San Pedro there's more to this place than the delicious tray of buttery shrimp served with garlic bread and salsa. This shrimp platter is full of flavor and seasoned to perfection. Plus, enjoy the live music and shopping that comes with visiting this Fishmarket so-cal standard!
Killer Shrimp: I mentioned it so I must elaborate. There are multiple locations and each with its own vibe. I love the beachside Hermosa, Ca. location that offers convinenent parking, happy hour deals and fast service. Their speciality is a fantastic "killer shrimp" dish which is basically a saucy medley of jumbo shrimp slow-cooked to perfection in the most delicious broth. Have it served with rice, bread or pasta. However you decide, you'll surely love it!
