New Ways (to use old shrimp)

The Baron and I were watching a film last night and decided we should have some beverages. A quick trip to Sanko later, we had a bottle of Asti and a bottle of wine. The champagne was not chilled. Adam had the bright idea of chilling it in a bucket with ice, but alas... no ice was to be found in my tightly packed freezer. What did I have? Freezer burned shrimp.

I have a thing about eating shrimp poopies. I won't do it. I make it a point to cut out the little poopchute before I cook them. But, the frozen shrimp I bought were so small, that painstakingly cleaning out all the poopers would have taken ages. I am lazy. So, they got freezer burned something vicious.

Step 1: Breaking up the chunks of icy shrimp.

Step 2: Repeat step 1 more violently.

Step 3: Pour shrimp around bottle in bowl.

Step 4: Admire your handiwork.

Step 5: Add water.

Step 6: Rotate briskly.

Step 7: Strain shrimp... eeew.

Step 8: Pop cork and make me scream like a little girl.

Step 9: Enjoy!

This is what happens when we get bored...
