#85. Fresh Seafood and No Frozen Shrimp

I tried a frozen prawn (they call it shrimp in the US I think) cocktail when I was on holiday and it was bad – glassy taste. So even though I don’t indulge in seafood frequently, it’s nice to know our seafood is fresh. It’s also cool to be able to have our uniquely Singapore version of crab, with chilli, pepper or butter, with our tons of seafood restaurants dotting the island.

    agreed, fresh seafood is the best! So awesome living in asia, we get year round fruits and an abundant amount of seafood

      these are the things I don’t really think about, but I think those who study abroad and away from the coast tell me about how it’s so hard to get tropical fruit and seafood.

  3. There’s nothing worse than rubbery shrimp! I grew up on the coast and then moved inland. What a disappointment to find out what bad seafood tastes like! You’re lucky!

    That’s so true!! Fresh food – seafood or otherwise – is the best!

    Funny, I was just complaining earlier to a colleague how chicken, prawns and most things taste frozen in Hong Kong…..
