above said. Tail on finger lickin’ good !]]>
I’m new to your site and have to say I’m really impressed. I’ve already marked quite a few recipes I want to try. Thanks for all the wonderful work.
Ok, to the real reason for commenting (I REALLY want that jam (^.^) Tail on! I hate seeing poor naked shrimp, how much indignity does a poor shrimp have to take? It’s indecent to leave a shrimp’s butt uncovered! Ok, ok. Enough hyperbole let me explain. I’m Asian so I grew up with shrimp with tail on. Taking the tail off is usually seen as unattractive is the answer I got when I asked about it when I was little. I also have to say I love actually eating the little shelled part left over depending on the recipe. Sometimes this piece becomes quite crunchy and full of umami from the shrimp and/or flavors of the dish. The best is when you make ebi-fry or shrimp tempura that last bit with the batter and shell is extra yummy. Hey, it’s calcium and I need all I can get since I don’t drink milk too often.
honey, I totally agree with you!!! I crunch through on the shell. esp deep fried shrimp ~jaden]]>
PS: I bet the peach jam would be great with shrimp]]>
