Is my geography off or does S & P's part of Montana border on the ocean. You've been showing up with a lot of seafood dishes lately. Now decorated with little pearls -- see, something else right out of the ocean. This one takes the cake.

That looks just spectacular S&P! I don't even want to guess how much that jewel would cost in a fine dining restaurant. Anybody have a bid?

i've never bought giant alaskan spot shrimp before, but i'll bet they're pricey, and huge like everything from alaska.

my guess would be $20 to $25 for an appy in a decemt joint. in montana, it'd be more.

nice job, s&p.

You're too nice. After all of that work I would have eaten it myself.

Hi Snip, the green stuff is just some decorative sheets that is mostly used to separate sushi. They are not eatable.
