Fish, shrimp and bad pictures
It all tasted so good last night, that I forgot to take pictures until I was pretty much done eating. So my apologies for the bad pics.
I had a piece of fresh grouper and some "Royal Red Shrimp". These shrimp are only available certain times of year here. Their migration is timed with certain water temperatures. They are very tasty and almost taste like lobster as compared to shrimp.
I marinated them in some fresh chopped herbs, garlic and evoo, paprika and cayenne powder.
The piece of grouper got "spread" with an olive, garlic and cilantro tapenade. Simple to make, just chop about 8-10 green olives, 2 small cloves of garlic, handful of cilantro and mix with a drizzle of evoo. Set in the fridge for about 4-8 hours.
Tomato and cucumber salad, with paprika, cayenne, evoo and a tiny bit of feta.
And my last shrimp.......if you're so inclined, take of the heads and crisp them up a bit on the grill. They are soooo tasty.
