A note about serious food allergies

There's nothing like crispy shrimp; something about the small crustaceans, battered and fried, makes them extra yummy, with a fantastic textural contrast of crunchy and soft. And if you add a bit of heat, a bit of the pickled vegetables, a bit of rice… you've got a bowl of dinner with enough flavor and contrast to impress even the most jaded culinarians.
