05 Dec Shrimp & Artichokes
One of the things I loved when cruising was seeing a shrimp boat come into our anchorage. We learned to dinghy over and see if they’d sell part of their catch — and were never turned down. While we loved boiled and steamed shrimp (see my article on preparing it), over time I created several new recipes based on whatever was still on hand.
Below, you can see my version of Shrimp & Artichokes, along with the story of our first “celebration from afar” where we shared a meal with some of our best friends — Jan and David Irons (they’re in the photo, but it’s from a bareboat charter we were on together) — who were over 1400 miles away on their boat.If the document does not show below (some browsers have problems), click here to view or download.
