the last day of the year and what a treat...

we went to this little truck stop restaurant up the road with the promise of percebes which i had never heard of,
but when we ordered them we were told there were none available

we ordered fish tacos and octopus and shrimp but just as the tacos arrive
i see these fisherman down below,
walking up the rocks with buckets,

john, who after 20+ years (on & off) in mexico still does not speak spanish,
jumps up and goes to meet them in the parking lot...

we score

i guess pretty much everyone who reads this blog knows what a food freak i am
and to try something i've never had before, especially sea food, is my idea of heaven
and the weirder the better
(remember the monkfish liver?)

these were a real treat,
very similar in taste and texture to steamers
(as john says)
thoroughly addictive

yes, we remember the monkfish liver...

of course we have! we call them "percebes".
percebes means "do you understand" too :D
love them warm with bread and butter. the best are short and black, no orange, and no red in the shell :)))
