Delivered: The World’s Best Shrimp | Awe Yesh Shrimp Company
What goes into the world’s best shrimp, and Florida’s best shrimp delivery service? It’s a combination of beautiful, clean ocean water fed by St. Johns River, and a dedicated chef and businessman willing to bring the highest quality, locally sourced crustaceans right to your door.
Enter Tom ‘Watty’ Watson, a Jacksonville, FL based entrepreneur and shrimp connoisseur. After 20 years of culinary experience working his way up at the Cajun Seafood and Poultry restaurant Ragtime Tavern, Mike moved into the distribution side of the business. While working with the Safe Harbor Seafood Company, Mike learned the ins and outs of the shrimp industry, including what makes Mayport shrimp legendary for being the best tasting shrimp on earth!
The shrimp industry is fast changing, with nearly 70% of all shrimp consumed in the US last year being imported. This makes Mike’s mission of delivering the best tasting and freshest shrimp available even more prudent. Mike takes pride in delivering shrimp with rainbow tails and red legs, clear signs of freshness and certain to be delicious! This combination of passion and circumstance has led to the creation of Florida’s best shrimp delivery service; Awe Yesh Shrimp Company!
Awe Yesh Shrimp Company is a business created with an immense about of pride. Even the name has a personal story, stemming from what one of Mikes late friends and longtime customer, Nasrallah, who would yell “AWE YESH” to him when he walked into his fish shop most days of the week. You can also learn a lot about Mike by his philosophy on cooking, “if it’s not good enough for my grandmother, then it’s not good enough to put in the window.” Now that’s the kind of guy you want handling your shrimp!
The future is bright for Awe Yesh Shrimp Company, with goals of servicing North East Florida, as well as a potential shrimp deli at Angie subs and even hot spot delivery, for convenience and expanded delivery options!
