We Love Shrimp. Sometimes its like a scene from Forrest Gump here. Fried shrimp, boiled shrimp, blackened shrimp, grilled shrimp and anything but coconut shrimp ! This is one of my year round favorites!
The Holiday season, is perfect for seafood. Besides being a nice break from all the dressing and turkey, its a great light appetizer or full meal!
