Lemon Shrimp with Asparagus & Zucchini Gnocchi

Our Jumbo Selection of Shrimp

Haggen has a shrimp for every taste. With an enormous range of sizes and types from waters warm and cold, our shrimp all have two important things in common: they’re harvested sustainably, and they’re delicious!

Aquaculture Shrimp
Giant Freshwater Shrimp – Available year-round, with a flavor reminiscent of lobster and a firm texture, in a size that makes them perfect for grilling.
Pacific White Shrimp – Warm-water shrimp with a clean shrimp taste and firm bite. Raised around the world with certified Best Aquaculture Practices.

Wild Shrimp
Gulf White Shrimp – Warm-water shrimp from the Texas coast are tender and mild, and available in a wide variety of sizes.
Oregon Pink Shrimp – Certified Sustainable. Caught from BC to OR, these petite shrimp are delicious as a salad topper.
Artisanal Baja Shrimp – Nice and big with great bite and flavor, these are crowd-pleasers on a party platter, and impressive in a shrimp cocktail.
