After a full morning at the beach, I was craving either seafood or Mexican food (something about the beach always makes me want one of those two things). We decided to have lunch at Pincher's Crab Shack. I ordered blackened grouper tacos, and the boyfriend ordered crab. Fish tacos used to sound like the most disgusting thing in the world to me, but now I think they might be one of my absolute favorite dishes. The ones I ordered came out looking perfect. They had a nice mango salsa on the side, and everything about them looked amazing. Unfortunately, looks were deceiving. The blackening seasoning they used was waaaaaaay too salty. I was very disappointed. However, I did manage to be brave enough to try some of my boyfriend's crab! I made him pull it out for me (there was no way I was going to be picking through crab parts for the meat), but I ate it. I actually kind of liked it. I can't imagine that I'd ever want to order it for myself and do all the breaking and picking, but I wouldn't mind having some crab meat in something sometime. His boy's feelings on the matter of picking out the meat were very different than mine. They had a great time cracking crab legs open and pulling out what they wanted to eat. They kept begging for more. In some ways, they are far more adventures eaters than I am!
