What Do People Say About Our Seafood?

"WOW, wow, and wow again! We got the shrimp today in perfect condition and had a dozen for dinner, sautéed in butter, garlic, and parsley, as you recommended, with a good bottle of Sauvignon. What an incredible feast! Tender, Sweet, and Delicious! Could have eaten them all in one meal, but will ration sparingly! Thanks!!!"
