Sweet, Spicy Yum!


It seems that everything has to be controversial, now that we're in the Trump Era. Even our food.

As Consumer Reports, well, reports, there are issues with shrimp whether you go with farm-raised or wild caught. Cutting to the chase, your best bet from both health and ethics standpoints is to go with US wild caught - ideally, certified by the Marine Stewardship Council as responsibly harvested. So, try to do that, because ain't nobody gonna stop eating shrimp!

And, hey, look! What a surprise - I just happen to have a couple of shrimp recipes to share with you. You didn't see that coming, I betcha! Let's get our grub on!

Grilled Shrimp X 2!
