Golden crumbs of fried garlic scattered over the shells are the only seasoning. It's a greasy job, pulling the shells apart to get at the meat. And the table grows silent because all attention is on the work.
Honey walnut cream shrimp (I can't resist that gooey, sweet dish) was well presented, with the walnuts on the side in case anyone couldn't eat nuts.
Well why not?This is a seafood place after all, and we had come a long way to eat there.
