Shellfish

*This is entry #50 for Lasang Pinoy, Sundays (La.Pi.S.)*

For this week’s La.Pi.S. theme, which is”Pearly Shells”, I’m choosing shellfish.   Everyone in my family is a worshiper of seafood.  Tops on our list are shrimps, prawns, crabs, mussels and oysters.  Our cooking of choice is steamed, to better enjoy their natural flavors.  Grilled and boiled in a simple soup, as a method of cooking, come as a close second and third.

Some love baked mussels and oysters topped with cheese.  I’m fine with that, too. :D

All this talk of seafood is making me homesick.  Back home, fresh seafood is available practically all the time.  No need to settle for frozen.

Have a great week ahead, y’all!  Cheers!

    Hi Raquel! I miss fresh oysters! We just steam them and for dipping sauce, we love vinegar with salt and pepper and lots of onions! But happy doesn’t like vinegar so no dipping sauce for him. :D

    Hi Ces! I usually go to the grocery very early in the morning, after I drop Abby off in school. And that time, hindi pa nakalatag ang mga seafood sa grocery. Hee hee. Kailangan pa ng timing! Haha! :D
