What’s Cooking in My Grandpa’s Kitchen: Local Shrimp

Look at the delicate speckles on those beauties!

While we were in St. Augustine for Thanksgiving week, we had shrimp twice. Apparently the shrimp were really biting, so everyone had pounds of it. We had these both as an appetizer and then in a pasta dish later that evening. A few days later, we had boil and peel shrimp on the back porch while we waited for dinner. The baby boy even got in on that action, chomping down shrimp after shrimp.

Honestly, I didn’t even realize the Florida coast had shrimp. But whatever. I’m glad they do. And I’m glad they decided to bite in November… so I could bite them.
