whoa! You'd fit in great in Southern California with that palate! (and other than the scampi part, I'd think we were related!)

Welcome to the site. (Lots of folks will be here tomorrow, as most hang out Monday-Friday)

Oh yeah-Makes sense now that I think about it!!!

In my defense, here in Nebraska, Long John Silvers is about as exotic as seafood gets!!!

Welcome. What 2 odd combination places I couldn't imagine! Good for you. God for the both of you. Do we know your american half?
Don't judge us on Long John Silver's, please. Only could manage the place once.
But glad to have you aboard.

Good one, Dave.

So you're getting married! Wow! Congrats to you and the soon to be missus.
I'm not a fan of seafood, but I will brag a bit and say my "chippy fish" is really delicious! I make mine with ice cold tempura batter and chunks of halibut.
I like to put malt vinegar on them too.

You'll have to share with us the wonderful British food that you make. I'm a fan of it for sure, especially cottage pie.
