The picturesque table setting overlooking the sunset in Santorini is just breathtaking. I think my ears were burning when my friend was enjoying the Greek Bruschetta, drinking the nice glass of white wine, overlooking the entire island of Santorini. Probably talking on and on about what I was missing! And yes, I can see that I was missing lots!
Now this photo really caught my attention not only for its vibrant colours, but because I love cooking crustaceans, whether steamed, grilled, fried, you name it! These looked freshly picked from the sea.
The Greeks are well known to use their-catch-of-the-day to prepare their seafood delicacy. Every single creature that is caught that day is slaughtered, chopped or grilled alive right in front of you. It's a gruesome sight for some, but I think it's something that I could get used to, as long as I don't do the slaughtering myself. Langoustines are like LARGE prawns. As explained to me, they were layed out on a plate ready to be picked by guests and cooked at a restaurant called Nikos, on Mykonos island. What are the chances of picking a freshly caught Langoustines to have it prepared the way you want it in a restaurant...in Canada? Almost NIL.
Thank you K for sharing your lovely photos and for the temptation to head down there and experience this myself!
