May 10th is National Shrimp Day
you're looking for something to do today then opt for seafood today
because it's National Shrimp Day! A small food for appetites
all sizes. Let's get right into celebrating National Shrimp
WHY IS THIS A
Today is a holiday because so many people love eating
fact well over 3 million tons of shrimp are caught worldwide every
year. Yeah, that's a lot of shrimp! And if we're eating them that often
then why even question the celebration? It was bound to happen!
And a shrimp is a crustacean that likes to hang out at the
of the ocean and can swim really fast backward. And you know, we're not
the only ones who love eating shrimp; whales love them too! They're
high in calcium and protein but you have to watch out because some of
you might actually be allergic to shrimp.
And you have to do a
little preparation before you eat your shrimp too. You'll want to
remove the head, legs and shell and then de-vein them because I don't
think you want to eat their digestive track. Then you can either keep
the tail on for a little handle or take the tail off if you don't want
to use your hands while you eat them. Then all you have to do is heat
them up until they're nice and pink and you're ready for some chomp
action. Now which shrimp-infused dish will you choose to eat?
So how can you celebrate today? Well, I think you already
know the easiest way to celebrate; head on over to your favorite
restaurant! Yeah, you can pretty much go to ANY real
and they'll have some kind of meal that includes shrimp. And
since it's a celebration... why don't you have a little fun with
it? Go out to eat with a few people and then order a few
different shrimp dishes and set them in the middle of the table so that
you can all sample each different meal. And try something
never had before, you know I would!
And if you don't feel like
going out to eat then check online for some good recipes that include
shrimp. You can make a big, fancy meal or just cook up the
on their own, it's up to you! There are SO many choices to
from whether you want to make peel and eat shrimp, shrimp scampi,
shrimp fried rice, grilled shrimp, soup with shrimp in it and so
on. Then all you have to do is go pick up some shrimp and
ingredients at your local grocery store so you can get to cooking.
But you're always welcome to have a little fun at home with
the shrimp you buy. You can cook up some shrimp, get them
to eat and then have a competition to see who can eat them the
fastest. Each person gets their own bowl, with the same
shrimp in them, then you just start the timer and see who can toss them
back the quickest. You might even want to have some kind of
cocktail or butter sauce for each person to dip them in. I
admit that after a while the shrimp just aren't going to taste as good
but it definitely is a way to celebrate! Enjoy your day and
little bite-sized, pink meat!
