Amaebi (甘海老 / Deep Water Shrimp)

Category: Ebi (prawn). Season: best from fall to winter. 

Amaebi live in 500 to nearly 2000 feet of water. They taste best when sourced from the cold waters of Hokkaido, and have a soft texture and sweet, lingering flavor. They are sometimes called akaebi due to the reddish taint of their flesh.
