Chefs and Cooks: Please remove shrimp tails!
WARNING: This blog will contain a lot of bitching and complaining.
I went to a restaurant today and experienced one of my biggest pet peevs. I ordered a dish that had pasta and shrimp in it and the damned shrimp still had the tails on it. Why the hell even bother to give me a fork if I am going to have to dig through my pasta to de-shell the shrimp! This happens all the time.
The only benefit to having the tails on shrimp is if they are cocktail shrimp and they are to be dipped in a sauce - that way you can hold onto the shrimp as you dip. Otherwise, THERE SHOULD BE NO FUCKING TAILS OR SHELLS ON THE SHRIMP! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! It gets me so pissed!
Someone told me that all the fanciest chefs leave the tails on and thats the way it's always been and they're not going to change how they do things for someone like me. Well, I'm sure I'm not the only one who gets aggravated as hell about this. From now on I make my own shrimp meals at home. It's easy and cheaper. Same for steaks. You don't need to be a damned Iron Chef to cook steaks OR shrimp!
What's wrong with this picture?
This Pisses Me Off So Bad!!! >:O
What really infuriates me is that I've known people that have gotten their esophagus severely scraped by a piece of shrimp tail that was left on a shrimp in a pasta. There have been people that get their throat impaled so badly that they cannot even swallow water, afterwords, and end up going to the ER because some retards think it's fun and cool to leave the damned shell tails on! AAAHHHGGGRRR!!!!!!!
