The musings of a former office worker stuck in his house applying for jobs, when he would rather be out on the water.

I have a confession. If I could eat one thing, for the rest of my life, it would be shrimp.

Hell, I'd even eat this guy.

No matter what kind of shrimp, I would eat it. Last night, my family and i were firmly ensconced around the table, discussing pickled herring. I took this opportunity to inform my family that I would like to do the traditional seven fishes meal with seven shrimps.

Shrimp Skewers
Shrimp Scampi
Shrimp Sushi
Shrimp and Pasta
Shrimp with Ooo La La Remoulade(a recipe I have made, delicious)
Fried Shrimp

My family said that this would be too much shrimp. I refuse to believe that. Shrimp, like beer, is proof that god loves us.

And this is my problem. I have a fish tank. And in that fish tank are ghost shrimp.
And even though I would of course never eat anything I kept in a fish tank.

I still wonder.

How would they taste sauteed with onions?


  1. Hmm, I don't think I would pick shrimp. I would probably pick Lay's Classic, yellow bag. No ridges, extra salt.

    We were most definitely ensconced at dinner.


    (P.S.---Capitalize the G in God!)

  2. Shrimp is awesome! I love any kind of seafood though, and would be hard pressed to pick just ONE type to eat forever. Maybe salmon, because along with being delicious, it is also incredibly good for you.

  3. The problem with salmon is it just isn't as versatile shrimp is.
