As Forrest Gump's friend Bubba proclaimed, "...shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad,..."

Bon Appétit!

Stop, you're making me hungry!

There's a Bubba Gump shrimp shop in Monterey I visit when I drive to Anaheim!

(And that's a drive... wish LA was a little closer ;) )
