So are you like the other 85% of people who are afraid of cooking seafood? GUYS THAT IS RETARDED. LOOKIT THIS AWESOMENESS AND TREMBLE.



OK, so it's hard to tell, but there are 3 happy pink shrimps nestled in the box, along with some macaroni, blanched greens beans and carrots, and some grapes.

Have you never cooked shrimps? Guys, it's so easy. If the shrimp aren't already deveined, this is how you down it: hold the little shrimp in your hand, his headless stump pointing towards you, tail away. Stick a small knife into the center of his stump and slice back and up, opening up the body cavity. The shell, if it's still on, should peel off pretty easily, and you can pluck off the tails if you want. Then run your knife along that icky black vein in the middle of the shrimp's body and toss it, because it's gross. Deveined! Shelled! Ready to go.

I melted a few tablespoons of butter in a pan and threw the shrimp on with a few cloves of garlic. Sprinkle some pepper and lemon juice and let cook on one side over medium for a few minutes, then flip to do the other side. They'll be all pink and curly and happy.

For the pasta, I just tossed some cooked macaroni with some olive oil, garlic, roma tomato, pepper, and dried basil. Om nom noooooom.

BTW, according to Wiki Answers, shrimp will keep for 3 days in the fridge after cooking. Yay.

This looks delicious. Pasta can be so easy to do. And if you don't eat meat or fish, just the pasta alone is fine. Adding the shrimp, though, makes it quite heavenly.

Yes those are HUGE grapes..I was looking at the pic before I read the text and I wondered to myself..'What are those huge round things in the side compartment? Probably some exotic fruit only avaialable in the BIG CITY!' And then I read they are grapes! The vines must be as thick as your arm...or is it just some trick of perspective of the photograph? Either way it does look yummy! (but I don't like shellfish so I'll go with just pasta)

LOL they are rather big. They're Chilean globe grapes, and I bought them on accident. They are very big but they have huge seeds, which is why they're cut up. But they are nothing too special. Just normal freakish fruit.

Yay, prawny foods! I love prawns <3 This is the perfect excuse for me to ask my sister to get me some of these lovely prawns my mum's uncle's company makes next time she's going to town. "TJ has fab recipes and I want prawns kthxbai."

You just made my day (night) with this (and the Jeevesian tote bag). NOM.
