Episode 83: Shrimp


Any episode that includes the question “do you prefer head-on or headless?” has got to be pretty good, right? We dive into the undersea world of shrimp and surface with a briny hangover and a couple of pretty awesome recipes. Recipes: Rick Bayless’s Shrimp with Mojo de Ajo, Kasma Loha-unchit’s Hot and Sour Shrimp Salad. www.spilledmilkpodcast.com

    yum! will definitely check out the recipes! thanks.
    oh, man, you guys crack me up.
    yikes, on the last horse you thing you said.
    i gotta admit, i do like the tails on the shrimp as holding device.
    and, as far as the “poop” vein, i don’t know, i just de-vein. but…..the roly poly you mention at the beginning of the podcast?? that crustacean- it poops and the poops are square shaped. little cubes. i do know that.

    I love shrimp heads! I hate tail on! People think you are going to stick your fingers in food? Nope. AND, something I learned from an Australian was how to get all of the meat out of the tail: You slightly squeeze the part right above the feathery ends and the whole tail pulls right out. Usually.

    Can’t wait to try the Thai salad! I make similar salads often, but have never added shrimp to one. (Not even dried shrimp, which I know makes my Thai salads woefully inauthentic…)

    You guys are so hilarious — I love listening to your show!
    I wanted to say:
    I have been known to eat a shrimp tail from time to time. But only with fried shrimp. I find it quite tasty, and I assume it’s similar in flavor/texture to the shrimp head, although I have never had the opportunity to try a shrimp head.
