In other words: Wicket and I got down and dirty with the frying.
Wicket did a much better job at containing the splatter than The General did. Respect.
In other news: peanut oil is a smokeless gift from the gods. My apartment is not smokey or smelly. Props.
The shrimp was delicious. I would be curious in trying the more intense recipe but this was a nice imitation. My special talent for making salads unhealthy shined tonight.
