Flying back from a weekend conference in Vegas.  Only 2 notable dining experiences were a special of garlicy sausage at Bouchon, and a great meal at Lotus of Siam.  2 dishes that should not be missed are the raw prawns marinated in fish sauce and served with a tamarind paste, and the deep fried garlic shrimp served along with the fried shells.  Odd to say, but I could eat those fried shells all day.  They would make an amazing bar snack.  Interesting that I've never encountered them before.

Any respectable sushi joint will offer to serve the shells as a second course to the sashimi. :)

Oh, I've had the heads served that way.  This was just the actual shell and tail (no heads), and had a different texture to it, probably due to them using some sort of salty/garlicy glaze.  Damn...now I'll be thinking about those things all day.
