It was my birthday at the beginning of the month, and I was lucky enough to celebrate it down in the South of France with my husband, a gorgeous few days of sun, rose, river swimming
and Crevette Gris! (brown shrimps)
I joke to Chris that I am a cheap date, as this is my all time favourite shellfish, maybe even food!
Now you can get them here, but they tend to always be shelled, I could go down to the beach, but the one time I did that, I only caught one, bonded with him, gave him a name and ended up setting him free ( I know, not normal). So these days crevette gris (with their shell on) is a treat reserved for when we are on holiday in France. Just like orangina used to be when I was little.
And to top it off, look what my lovely sister gave me for my birthday!
Two stunning Emma Bridgewater plates, one covered in langoustine
and one covered in my crevette gris! Perfect, thank you Serena xxxx
