    Next up we have the shrimp and crab platter, these fookers are quick so be fast with your net.


    So much more flavour than the processed ones bought in the supermarket.

    Mussels boiling with Taffy fighting the good fight.


    Bouncing shrimps, what's left of them and Taffy playing the dying fly.


    Shrimps were noice but Taffy ...he had spirit..


    Those shrimp don't half jump on the hot plate, lost half of them in the bbq.

    One lucky crab showed such fight and resolve that we decided to free him back to the sea.

    We named him Taffy..



    Caught a couple of bucket fulls of mussels and cockles...

    20 a kilo in a Chinese supermarket...


    No crab was killed in the making of this thread.

    I loved caracois when I lived on the Algarve.. the ciganos would roam the area picking them from the cactus plants that abound. They would collect whole sacks of them to sell to the local tascas. Pain in the ass to dig out but lovely to eat with a cold beer.

    Been a long time, but I think those are periwinkles with the mussels, not cockles.

    Well spotted chaps, the winkles were stuck to rocks and the cockles....required some nifty footwork in the sand.
