California shrimping

fresh, succulent Pacific shrimp

Six weeks in San Diego, Malibu and Los Angeles, and I’ve made a mission of shrimp.

Living up in the mountains of Central Europe, shrimp is hard to come by, except as ice-coated lumps with next to no flavour. So almost as soon as I landed at Lindberg Field, there was a beeline made to the nearest cantina.  Rocky’s, at Oceanside harbour, delivered a plate of shrimps in a lime, chilli and garlic sauce that – as a combination of four of my favourite flavors – was simple, perfect heaven.

I had shrimp with avocado, shrimp tacos, Chinese chilli shrimp and all manner of pink crustacean delights. But nothing came close to that first, exquisite, succulent mouthful of spicy, zingy, fresh, aromatic shrimp at Rocky’s. Thanks, guys.
