Ques about a recipe: Shrimp Burgers w Roasted Garlic-Orange Aioli. Do Brooklyn-based Food52ers have a trusted fish monger to recommend?

053111f_284

I have a question about the recipe "Shrimp Burgers with Roasted Garlic-Orange Aioli" from EmilyC. In the slideshow for this recipe, we see Amanda with the shrimp and the caption mentions having a trusted fishmonger peel and devein the shrimp for you. I live in Brooklyn. I'm wondering: do Brooklyn-based Food52ers have a trusted fish monger to recommend?

I don't know where in Brooklyn you live but for years I have used fish tales on Court St in Cobble Hill. Fish is always fresh, service is great. Also at Fairway in Red Hook they have some pretty good seafood.

Just thought I'd add that when I made the burgers, I bought my shrimp already peeled and deveined from my local Whole Foods (in Virginia). You may have to pay a dollar or two more per pound, but what a time saver. And another option is good-quality frozen shrimp which are often peeled and deveined already. On the label, make sure they're uncooked as opposed to pre-cooked. I'd just do a quick thaw under cold running water before using them. That said, a trusted fish monger is hard to beat and I hope you find one!
