but one thing that is sorely lacking is
Fortunately, a friend of my husband's let him in on a little
secret a few months ago.
It seems that a truck from Fabian Seafood
comes up to B-town with fresh seafood from the gulf
every so often in the warm weather months.
I was directed to go online and sign up
on Fabian Seafood's website so that I could be notified
when they would be coming to town.
I got the email last week
and marked the date on my calendar.
Fresh seafood was on the way.
The shrimp have been deshelled and deveined.
I then added sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper
before quickly sauteing.
Since this was fresh shrimp,
these literally took one minute to cook.
By the time I had put all the shrimp in the pan,
it was time to turn the first shrimp
and then it was time to take the first shrimp out of the pan.
It was that fast.
But was it worth it?
The answer was unanimous.
This shrimp had a wonderful flavor.
It had the flavor of the ocean,
or in this case, the gulf.
Living in Southern Indiana,
we tend to forget that shrimp is supposed
to have a flavor and not just texture.
I'm in love with shrimp all over again.
