Tomorrow is Thanksgiving for US readers, which brings me to the topic of food.
Throughout my childhood, I was allergic to shellfish – that is, clams, oysters, lobster, shrimp, crab, squid, and octopus. A recent allergy test confirmed that these are now safe for me to eat. Apparently I’ve got a lot of catching up to do. I had some crab cakes a little while ago that didn’t blow me away, and some shrimp and crab alfredo that my fellow diners assured me could have been much better.
Thus, please use the comments to share your favorite dish along these lines with me, or any guidelines you use for picking quality seafood off the menu. And have a happy Thanksgiving!
