    Just Keep Swimming

    I love seafood.

    It has been somewhat of an obsessive pilgrimage. The endless search for the fresh, the sweet, the succulent. The chase of the briny flavour of the sea, coupled with bright, seductive colours.

    I can never resist the promised flavour explosion that the sweet coral of a crustacean brings. And as someone once said to me, “You can never get fat on seafood”. Whether or not that is true, it is but a consolatory statement as I gorge on all the sea has to offer.

    Just looking at these Alaskan crabs through the glass, my mouth begins watering. Their perfect, coral legs splayed in the air just inspires a ravenous hunger for the sweet/salty flesh within.

    It was a very good day. A very good day indeed.
