Fun Fact

I’m a big seafood snob. Growing up in the fishing industry and working with fishermen now allows me access to high quality seafood. I have a freezer full of it. I only eat shrimp if its “Jeff’s shrimp”, or “Joe’s albacore”. I’m the worst person to take out to dinner at a seafood restaurant.
