Ha ha, tonight Kate and I went to a really good restaurant on the water in Salema, and almost all the dishes were seafood and by the way, I don't like fish. But this is a fishing village, and how often are you in Portugal?, I figured I should try something. I ordered the jumbo prawns, expecting to get some pink jumbo shrimp, nice and easy - but these guys were about 8 inches long each - and served in tact, with the legs, tail, and EYES still on!! I know it's not that crazy, but it was so hysterical for my first time with a whole animal on my plate. I had to look off into a corner of the room while I peeled the shells off, because I couldn't look my meal in the eyes.
