    Oh Yes.... Shrimp... Tail on, tail off, Peeled and deveined and cooked to a skilled perfection....

    Just as Fine as Frog Hair and getting more fine that that is hard to beat...

    Nicaragua DOES have some of the finest seafood anywhere... why might you say?

    Because of No global warming I guess.... Never snows here that I have seen anyway....

    OK I am a follower of seasons, and In my times with the species is goes like this... The rascals are hatched in the open coastal seas where the eggs is laid at the near end of life as they know it... (White Shrimp, other species have their own idiocynricies) Big Mamuus in Cajon...

    They then are pushed inshore on the surface of the water by tidal and wind currents as embrios to what is deemed by the biological and sientific Community as nursery areas. If these areas are not full of human Sh*t, chemicals, and other pesticides they will thrive and grow in this brackish water environ that is supposed to be full of natural neutriants. (if not they will eat and grow on Pureina Dog Chow under artifical conditions)...

    As they settle down to this almost salt inviron and the food supply is maintained they become happy campers and do what they are supposed to do which is grow into adolence and start the procreation process.

    When all of a sudden comes a big ole toilet flush known as a frog strangeling fresh water rain...

    It runs their butts to the coastal seas but close in where we can get at 'em, so in essience to the answer to your question... the best season for this particular species is just after a dry season when the rains first come to run them into areas where they can be captured.....

    Those ones raised on Pureina Dog Chow that taste like cardboard can be had the year round... I hope this explaination has been helpful, coming from and Ex Scalloper who is nothing more than a Shrimper that has had his brains knocked slam out of his head....

    My father could tell the difference in flounder and fluke, the meat tasted different depending on what the fish have been feeding on.Some times they would be eating seaweed and plants(not so good taste) other times they would be feeding on worms and squid and shellfish (better tasting fish)
    My father is no pro but he has some good stories. He would fish and catch eels in the 1950's in city Island in the bronx and take his fish and gear on the bus back to the projects where his family lived, he would give some of his catch to the local Italian restuarant owner to insure over sized portions of italian food with his girlfriend (my Mom) and the best table available.

    After seeing that plate of shrimp--had to go have my own today. Wife and I went to Mi Viejo Ranchito. http://www.miviejoranchito.com/ Km 17.5 carretera a Masaya 250 cords what you see on the plate (+2 more shrimp that I ate before the picture was taken) We both enjoyed our meals. Found the shrimp a tad greasy, but still enjoyable!! We have eaten there before and enjoyed that meal as well. For Nica, its maybe a bit on the high side, price wise! Place is always busy.

    Man, Scott, their prices must have skyrocketed! The amount of shrimp in JW's pic is what I'm talking about for a meal!!! I've always enjoyed the Nica lasagna at Viejo's. Tortillas instead of pasta, refried beans, lots of Nica cheese...yummy!

    Had it done here (pdf).

    Manuel then astonished me by calling me last week to ask if I was completely satisfied with his paint job. He detailed the interior at no cost, polished all the chrome, replaced the tail lights, and all without asking me.

    That was a 1986 Ford F250 (guess it still is); looked really rough.
