The shrimp thing is just brilliant - once again, you amaze and inspire!
Greg Thanks! I have more in the freezer and thought about going a different route with the next batch.

We are doing the pressure cooker instead of a traditional boil. That works better for most things that require boiling here at 5000 feet altitude. Is the scrapping completely necessary? Some of the Filipinos like to leave a bit of the fat and meat on, claiming it adds to flavor.
But yours sure look a whole lot better than my first try at them!
Thanks Tatoosh! I scrapped to remove all fat and meat. Wanted them to be as puffy as possible. I agree fat and meat are tasty..... more like cracklins but tasty.
Good luck with yours, hope you take pics!!
