I kept seeing seafood today… everywhere I went. First of all this article in the paper got me going. As a kid my family would go to Red Lobster about once a year, and that is seafood as I knew it. And I loved it! Likely because everything is slathered in butter and you don’t really taste any seafood. One Christmas I ate so much shrimp that I got hives. Anyways, it’s been a while and I made seafood tonight.
Sidebar: I’m determined to go to this restaurant, it looks so good: Rock Lobster Food Co.
So tonight I went to the Loblaws at Maple Leaf Gardens here in Toronto, and picked up some Tiger Shrimp and Sea Scallops. The bill… was hefty. I have no idea why that place is SO much more expensive than anywhere else – or so it seems. In the end it was worth it for the fresh produce.

To tell you the truth I liked the scallops better, and they were half the price. So substitute as necessary!
