It’s been a while since I’ve eaten (let alone cooked) seafood.
I was really craving flounder fillet… maybe broiled with some lemon, butter, and parsley… but when I got to the fish market, these jumbo shrimp just caught my eye. They were huge.
I needed to buy them and eat them for dinner ASAP.
That broiled flounder does sound delicious, though. There’s always next time 🙂
