True Life: We’re Making Shramp
So with our final exams completed it was time to feast once again. This meal was destined for greatness, after all there were shrimp involved. Making the shrimp turned out to be more of a challenge than anticipated. The first step was how to prepare those sumptuous little critters. Coconut shrimp was our poison. We looked for guidance in the only place we knew, the talented and often obnoxious Rachel Ray. Her recipe for coconut shrimp was written in some sort of code, so we disregarded its message and did our own thing. We coated the shramps in egg and dipped them in a coconut and breadcrumb mixture. The little ones then were set onto the hot pan to be fried to perfection. This is where the adventure got dangerous. Oil was spewing all about and nearly maimed T- Nasty, Botswana, and Tim (a delightful helper in the preparation of the meal). Don’t worry, we all survived. While this was occurring, a significantly less dangerous black quinoa, edamame, yellow pepper and radish salad was assembled. Oh, and on to the Mango dipping sauce. Quite possibly the tastiest of all! Botswana expertly threw some mango, sweet chili sauce, and siracha in a pot and let it simmer to perfection. Ju Ju was noticeably absent and her presence was duly missed. Don’t worry she will soon make her triumphant return to the stage!
