I just saw this on the Kittalog blog, posted by occasional commenter Kitt in Denver. She must be visiting Wisconsin right now because she posts about an inn in Door County that features a fish boil four nights a week.
You read that right: fish boil.
As I commented on Kitt's post, having been born and raised in the Chesapeake I find the concept of boiling just about any seafood to be strange, foreign and a tad bit disturbing. And think about seafood in Maryland - and perhaps, Virginia:
- Our oysters are fried or eaten raw, or stuffed into dressings;
- Our crabs are steamed - always - or fried if soft (occasionally if hard);
- Our shrimp and clams are steamed or fried;
- Our fish is fried, steamed or (thanks to the explosion of Japanese restaurants) eaten raw.
