While shopping for the freshest ingredients, remember to look for local ingredients that are packed with flavor, as are Certified Wild American Shrimp, caught from the open waters along the Gulf and South Atlantic.
“Wild-caught shrimp are fresh, succulent and tender unlike 85 percent of the shrimp, which are imported and pond-raised,” said Chef Dean James Max, executive chef of 3030 Ocean located in Marriott’s Harbor Beach Resort and Spa in Fort Lauderdale. He has received rave reviews for his fresh, simple and healthy style, which stems from a philosophy of natural and traditional preparation using impeccable ingredients.
A typical four-ounce portion of Wild American Shrimp has just 112 calories, when served steamed, boiled, grilled or baked, so it can be a refreshing way to lighten up your menu.

“When you ask for Certified Wild American Shrimp at a restaurant or seafood counter, you’re supporting an important American industry that spans generations,” added Max.
