There's Shrimp Boats a Comin' There's....Maine Shrimp!

Passadumkeg | Feb 7, 2009 03:35 PM

The season is here. We're getting Maine shrimp for $.50/lb. I lived in Norway before Maine and we often have a Norwegian Rekker Fest (shrimp party) A rekker fest is a shrimp peeling contest to make and consume open faced shrimp sandwiches (rekker smorbrod) and consume copious amounts of icy white wine. crusty white bread, steamed cold shrimp, butter, mayo (in a squeeze bottle), lemon juice, and lots of cold white wine. We also rip off the heads and fry them up in hot oil w/ pepper flakes and eat them w/ shel. Olive oil and garlic or cream pasta sauces,omelettes, shrimp salad, w/ avocado halves and on white pizza. How do you enjoy this seasonal treat?
