I have mentioned I am allergic to some seafood, but whenever I am back home, I would rather suffer and be drugged than pass on this cathedral of goodness.
Today, I had lunch with my dad and we had rice and crab in coconut cream sauce with some chili. A spectacular meal. The crab is fresh and sweet, swimming in a most flavorful, mildly hot, coconut pool. The boy would certainly love this. He would’ve eaten loads and loads of it! But don’t tell him I said that. In Makati, we don’t eat a lot of seafood because it can never be as fresh as here, plus those are mightily overpriced as well. Pointless.
With seafood, the fresher the better. I remember one of the best meals I have ever had. A fisherman gave my dad a piece of tuna he just caught and within 10 minutes, fish on the grill, cleaned and simply seasoned, and that was dinner. Does it get any better than that? No way. I am indeed very lucky!
