I ate a lot of shrimps while on my vacation. My friend and I decided to cook onece a day and eat all sorts of awesome appetizers at night instead of diner. I bough lots of shrimps from Ecuador (those big ones!), some garlic and oil. We hade them with many sauces, some of them with the wonderful flavour of the Caribbean. IWished I could have brought some of those tastes home. Do you wish you could aet some of the delicious food you eat abroad when you are back from a trip? I do and many times I learn to do a new dih. Internet is very helpful. Share your own experiences.

If ever I would like to bring anything back is so people who have not tasted it would experience what I experienced, sorry but i am simply like that at times, once i've tasted something good I want people especially my family to taste it too cause I'm off to the the next adventure and ask wife if she can copy it, yes with the help of the internet. Nice to see you back friend, yes the prawns, really delicious, we have a lot here cause we culture it, wonder why it's so expensive and common folks have to settle for the smaller ones , I think it's simply because the choice is for the foreign market for export to rich countries like japan, we call it "sugpo" here and I prefer mine simple with just a little fish sauce and native lemon called "calamansi", also soured soup called "sinigang" with tamarinds, tomatoes,lots of water spinach, radish, milk fish etc...healthy and would keep blood pressure and allergy down for some people.

I try to learn to cook new dishes that I have tasted abroad too, but sometimes I just cannot get the right ingredients. We also export some of our most precious seafood to rich countries like Japan and in some cases they have been fished to almost extintion. Such is the case of the abalone, once a wonderful molusc we could have here.

at least they buy them, but another country just poaches them within our EEZ ( exclusive economic zone) as mandated by the U.N., yes and it won't be long before all the marine life there is also fished out of extinction cause they fish for commercial purposes, whereas all of us( countries) have shared it together for hundreds of years using traditional methods, guess that happens when a good neighbor suddenly becomes rich and thinks she now owns everything

I am so hungry now. Last night I joined the wedding party of my boss's daughter. It is such a big wedding event. And the most important thing is full of delicious and innovative dish on the table. Since it was held in five star hotel, it is very hard to duplicate the dish at home while I think it is very yummy. Saying the loyster, it is really great to taste it. However, I don't even know how to cook it, not to say the taste.

In my life I've only had the opportunity to travel abroad once and I will admit that after I got back from my trip, I got really picky about the Italian food that I will eat because the Italian food here is just not the same. Now, my husband spent many years of his childhood in Germany and it is one of his greatest desires to be able to cook German food that tastes like what he remembers from Germany. He keeps trying and though he has been successful with some dishes, he has also failed miserably with other dishes.

Yes if only I could bring home all the different wonderful food we've tasted abroad then I would. In most cases all I could do is just make my own homemade version of the food. Sometimes my cooking is successful but sometimes not. Nevertheless I enjoy doing my own version of every food I find really good and tasteful. I think going to different places give us not just opportunity to see the place, meet new people and experience new culture but also chance to enjoy different kids of food.

I had a lovely time! I got well with my friend, met new people and belt I had more energy than what I have had this last year. But the eating part is finished for the moment: I went up 4 kilos. I am eating reasonably since I came back and will try to walk some to have some exercise.

I am too fond of shrimps. In India we cook the same with coconut milk at times or at times make steamed shrimp wraps with cabbage leaf with some garlic, mustard sauce, onions, green chilies. The same can be taken with steamed rice. Thanks a lot for sharing your experience.
