roast the corn on the charcoal grill as well, wrapped in foil.

Can you introspect out loud? --CRwM

In foil? No! by ad hoc (4.00 / 1) #2 Sun Aug 06, 2006 at 04:53:18 PM EST
Remove as much silk as you can without removing the husk. Soak whole corn (husk and all) in heavily salted water. Roast in husk.

MMmmmm.

Shrimp? by ajf (4.00 / 2) #4 Sun Aug 06, 2006 at 07:58:31 PM EST
"Shrimp"?

You've been away from home too long.

Sounds tasty though.

They call them 'peppers' here too.

You're lucky I am still tripping up with pronouncing router. To me it's a 'rowter', here it's a 'rooter'. Just sounds odd.

A "rowter" makes holes in wood, a "rooter" tell stuff where to go.

Completely correct by Phage (4.00 / 2) #11 Mon Aug 07, 2006 at 03:42:52 AM EST
But in my background, root is a euphemism for feck. So outside of the garden, the American pronounciation has been adopted to avoid offence.

The root-route thing has me sufficiently by cam (4.00 / 2) #15 Mon Aug 07, 2006 at 07:56:07 AM EST
confused that I dont know which I used to say. Every road here is a route, so I dont snigger at the word root anymore. Then again, I pronounced potomac phonetically for several years before training myself to say pah-tome-ick instead of potta-mack. Reminds me of the jokes about woo-loo-moo-loo.

It is pan-pac by cam (4.00 / 1) #6 Mon Aug 07, 2006 at 01:14:06 AM EST
Apparently there is a difference between shrimp and prawns, something to do with their gills are, or something like that. I thought it was too different words for the same thing.

it looks delicious! by bobdole (4.00 / 2) #13 Mon Aug 07, 2006 at 06:26:21 AM EST
but shrimps still taste like saltwater chewing gum as far as I'm concerned. More or less depending on how they're done, but still.

bubble gum shrimp by lm (4.00 / 2) #14 Mon Aug 07, 2006 at 06:34:03 AM EST
Shrimp only taste like bubblegum when they're overcooked or have been frozen. Here in the Ohio, it's rare to not get them both overcooked and frozen.

The aversion of my wife and kids, though, comes from the fact that they look like bugs.

marinate, skewer, grill lightly and feel their juice dribble down your chin when you eat them.
