Lobster is too expensive, crawfish is primarily regional, and for those having arachnophobia issues, crabs too closely resemble spiders. Shrimp are the most widely abundant, acceptable culinary specimens of the crustacean world. On May 10, we celebrate Shrimp Day.
When deciding on selections for your Shrimp Day celebration, the list of ways in which to prepare the star can pose a challenge. So on the weekend prior to your event, view the award-winning film, “Forrest Gump”. Pay attention to the scenes in which Bubba prattles off all the different ways to cook shrimp.
Choosing whether to grill, boil, broil, deep fry, stir-fry, steam, sauté, or stew is just the beginning. From shrimp dip, shrimp kebabs and shrimp cocktail to shrimp bisque, shrimp scampi and shrimp tacos, the possibilities are as vast as the seas offering this gastronomic gift.
If you would prefer to opt out of the kitchen, just gather with friends and celebrate Shrimp Day at the restaurant named after Bubba himself. The problem is, you will still have to make a decision, and it won’t be any easier.
