I can’t even, you guys.
The Splendid Table’s How to Eat Supper. My favorite cookbook this summer, and this is another reason why. One of my biggest regrets about our trip to Hawaii a few years ago was that we never managed to time a visit to a shrimp truck. We saw them everywhere and just never made it to one. They were closed, or we’d just eaten somewhere else, or they looked really shady. But I still think about them, and I will imagine that they taste exactly like this until we get back there to try them.
Garlicky. Lick-your-fingers good. Swimming in wine, lemon, and butter. Somehow the best thing to eat on a hot summer night with some rice. I totally get it now and wish I’d eaten these at every truck we saw. Make sure you leave time for them to marinate overnight.
