I’m a bit of a finicky eater that doesn’t like fancy food. I grew up in a meat and potato kind of environment, and tried Mexican food only because they served tacos with my elementary school lunch.

As a child I could guarantee that dinner would consist of some kind of meat (probably fried), potatoes (which I had to peel every day of my childhood) and a vegetable.

Our evenings are cooler, our mornings are kissed by the dew and harvested pumpkins adorn our homes. As autumn breezes caress their way through crimson, gold and burlap crisp leaves creating nature’s carpeting…our desire for heartier meals intensifies.

Growing up in coastal New England, I developed a keen love of fresh seafood, especially shrimp. After living in Southeast Ohio for more than 20 years, though, I’ve learned to reset my taste buds for our landlocked local specialties such as farm-raised pork, ramps and pawpaw.

Now I can add freshwater prawns to that list. Hocking College’s Fish Management and Aquaculture program has been raising them for a decade now, but I had my first chance to try this local shrimp last fall during their annual harvest.
