The grey shrimp, also known as 'Purus', is a unique Flemish sea product. Often described as the ‘queen of seafood’, they are less than an inch long when peeled, have a greyish-pink colour, and a more pronounced taste than the traditional larger, pink shrimps.

This treasure of the North Sea is used in many typical Flemish dishes. A traditional way of eating them is to have them stuffed in tomatoes with lemon juice and mayonnaise, also known as ‘tomate-crevette’ (Tomaat Garnaal). Or try the very tasty 'croquette aux crevettes grises' (shrimp croquette).
