I love seafood.  The way to my heart is to shower me with seafood!  I’ll eat all of it.  It is in my genes.  My father is from Nova Scotia – the east side of Canada where they talk with funny accents:D  I’ve grown-up on seafood.  The joke in my family when someone was on a diet they were on the “see food” diet. 
I eat seafood on a regular basis.  In fact I recently ate jellyfish at a restaurant.  It looked like cutup onion and was slightly translucent but ohhhhh was it good.  I usually eat salmon (canned and smoked too), shrimp, mussels, clams and occasionally lobster.  When I improve my fishing technique I can add freshly caught fish to that list. 
Seafood + Spicy is an awesome combination!  The lemon in this recipe enhances the cayenne pepper and paprika so well.  The recipe requires a few ingredients, you mix it together, grill and voila you can have dinner or a side dish in a few minutes.  I used it as a side dish for steak.

    I'm mad for seafood as well and I am totally craving those gorgeous shrimp in the photo. They look wonderfully plump! Jellyfish, huh? I didn't know they could be eaten!

    I can't wait to try your recipe!

    I didn't know you could eat jelly fish either. I ate clams in a tomato broth at a restaurant and that was amazing too. I want to figure out that recipe and share it.

    Alaiyo, wikipedia explains it and shows a picture of the edible jellyfish.
