Seafood Dinner

A few friends came by last night to stay the night, only because the fish market opens at 5am and we need to get there to buy fresh fish. The Billingsgate Market is actually quite near my work in Canary Wharf, and I actually used to live right across from it. Normally you find restaurants buying fish here in the morning for their needs throughout the day, and occasionally you'll find a few wanderers (like us!) buying in small quantity. The selection was huge and very inexpensive. We ended up buying shrimp, crab claws, mussels, and of course, fish!

We spent the rest of the day hanging out until the evening, and we cooked up a storm at Jenny's place. Okay, so originally it was supposed to have been hosted at MY place. Unfortunately, my place lacks the necessary utensils to cook up a proper meal. (I don't have a pot big enough to cook for more than two people!) Nevertheless, it was a great meal even though I couldn't eat most of what was on the table. Being allergic to shellfish really sucks!
