We had 21 guests for dinner tonight . . . and just because they were a little crabby and kind of shrimpy . . . I cooked 'em up!
I usually don't throw someone into a pot of boiling salt water just because of an attitude issue, (i.e., crabby), but this time it was necessary.
And calling these guys "shrimpy" is not an insult.
But just so you know, this Utah city girl cooked her first fresh crab and shrimp.
The crab was by far my favorite of the two. It was tender, flavorful, and tasted heavenly! And although I really like shrimp, cutting off the heads and seeing all the "green brain slime ooze" all over my paper towel seemed to take my appetite away. My son-in-law told me that people enjoy shaking a little salt on the head and sucking out the brain juice - now that's just plain SICK!
Thanks to the dear friend who supplied us with this tasty meal.
