      Hi Pam,

      You can find shrimp base in most grocery stores in either the Mexican food section, the Cajun/Creole section or near chicken broth and bouillon cubes.

        Is shrimp base the same as the shrimp paste used in Asian recipes?

          No, shrimp base is fermented. Shrimp base is like a bouillon for shrimp/seafood stock. Prepared, this base has the pleasant flavor and aroma characteristic of shrimp stock.

    I was lucky enough to eat this amazing dish in the house of blues in Florida. Unfortunately we don’t have ‘shrimp base’ in England. I would love to make this.
