Shrimp is the fruit of the sea

Anyway, like I was sayin’, shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, sautee it. Dey’s uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that’s about it.

  1. I had shrimp in Italy. They don’t take the heads off there.

    That means when you’re done, you have this huge pile of shrimp heads staring up at you with their beady little cooked and deflated eyes, long mournful whiskers, alien-esque pincers, and what’s left of their mutilated tails.

    I had to cover them with my napkin. I won’t eat shrimp again for a while.

  2. I was told later that the shrimp brains/insides were considered a delicacy some places.

    Not knowing what all I was supposed to eat, I had eaten all the insides of one and had decided based on taste and texture that clearly you weren’t supposed to do that… 🙂

  3. I don’t know about shrimp, but crawfish brains are crazy good. You don’t crack the skull open, you just suck a little at the back, and it all comes out. Deee-licious.

    Aside from that, keep in mind, lobster, shrimp, crawfish…all bugs. The anatomy of a cockroach and that of lobster are nearly identical. And aside for the little fishiness, insect meat tastes the same as most shellfish meat. (What can i say, I’m adventurous, I’ve had tarantula and -giant- grasshopper…grasshoppers i would be scared of if they were alive)

    And as for the eyes looking back at you… if you have a guilty conscience about eating meat, maybe you shouldn’t eat it (leave more for me!)
