Victoria Station-Kine Shrimp

About 30 years ago . . . I can't believe I say that nowadays . . . 30 years ago, 40 years ago . . . sheese, soooo unreal how the time just few by so fast . . .

Anyway, about 30 years ago, both my brother Cy and my sister Didi worked at Victoria Station on Kapiolani. They had this super ono shrimp dish that I would order all the time. I made up this recipe . . . it's kinda similar. I made this for Thanksgiving yesterday.

First I mix together butter, parsley and chopped garlic.
I butterfly the shrimp, spread on the butter concoction and sprinkle bread crumbs over it.
I then sprinkle a little salt over the whole thing and broil.
Simple yeah. Tomorrow I'm gonna share Didi's recipe for this mochi rice dish that she made. I loved it. Not as easy to make as my dish though. Stay tuned!

mmiissee, bummahs. A lot of my friends can't eat shrimp.

Hahaha, Erick, you know I really no can cook.

Rand, I soooo am not a good cook. I can only make a handful of easy-kine stuff.

Kat, I think you'll like it.

Nate, it was at the end of Kaheka across the Pan Am building, makai of Kapiolani.

Didi, I feel the pain too!

Thanks Betty!
