Let me start this off by saying, unlike Lexi, I HATE seafood. Growing up, I would literally hold my breath and nose and run when we were by the seafood section in the grocery store. Whenever my parents would cook fish for my family, my dad would have to cook chicken for me, and god forbid if he used the same utensil to touch my chicken as he did the shrimp. And if those shrimp came within an inch radius of my chicken, I wasn’t eating dinner because my meal was contaminated.
And then, just a few nights ago, I ate raw tuna. Raw scallops. Fried squid. Shrimp. Lobster. Red snapper. And I LOVED it, all thanks to the best meal I’ve had in a long time at San Salvaje by Stephan Pyles.
