i've had a love of seafood since i was 4 or 5.mum didn't bother asking me what i wanted for my birthday meals,she knew it would be battered scampi.she used to buy large fresh langoustine tails from macfisheries fishmongers in chester dip in a very light batter & fry.mum was the best cook in the world.....happy days!
