Got to be NC Seafood!
In this video, we accompany Chef Wes to the docks of Wanchese where he purchases 56lb of fresh-off-the-boat Green Tail shrimp in preparation for an upcoming Chefs on Call catering event at the gorgeous Pine Island Lodge in Corolla:

About Wanchese Green Tail Shrimp
White Shrimp, known to OBX locals as Green-Tails are prized and sought after by chefs and foodies along the Carolina coasts, and we have to wait it out till the fall before the bounty comes in. Green-tails, or white shrimp, have a more subtle, sweeter flavor. They like to hang out in brackish marshes, preferring soft, muddy bottoms. Shrimpers start bringing them in during late August and usually their season lasts until the end of November.
