Shrimp galore

"Shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, sauté it… There's, um, shrimp kebabs, shrimp Creole, shrimp gumbo, pan-fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple shrimp and lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich... That- that's about it."

some people think of shrimp as roach of the sea, but i am quite partial to it. how do the natives preserve the shrimp they have at home? do they boil it in heavily salted water dry it and sew it in cotton gauze bag to dry? it certainly turns to amonia vapors easily.

IT began as a field diary for my summer in Jizan (2006) under the title "Watch Out Bubba Gump." Now I'm not sure what it is... but I do know it's time for me to start writing again.
