Raw shrimp in Bologna? Really?

Jump to last reply

I was recently reminded of this incident that happened 2 years ago in Bologna ...

I stopped for lunch at Le Mura Osteria, on the Vicolo del Falcone. The menu is all seafood. I ordered the shrimp salad (using my handy menu translator). The owner informed me in pidgin English that the shrimp is normally served raw, but perhaps an American would prefer it steamed?

With big eyes I nodded mutely, and he brought me a steamed shrimp salad. It was delicious -- I went back to the same restaurant for dinner another time, and had another outstanding meal.

But I'm still wondering about that raw shrimp... really? Do Italians ``normally'' eat raw shrimp in a salad? Or was he just yanking my chain? I've never heard of such a thing before or since.
