    Default Do You Enjoy Eating Seafood?

    Seafood: crustaceans like prawns, crab, lobster; shell creatures like mussels, clams, oysters,; other weird and wonderful creatures like octopus, squid; and of course, fish etc.

    Some people avoid most kinds of seafood while othes love it.

    I have been eating a bit more and starting to develop a taste for it. I find that most of my friends who don't like it have really tried much of it since they were a child.

    It's not the cheapest of foods but if cooked nicely, I can enjoy it.

    Love it. But Albuquerque isn't exactly a seafood type of city. When I visit my family in Washington I like to get my fix.

    my favourite! I remember the first time I had prawns - we were at the seaside and I saw a vendor selling these strange, coral things. I asked my parents about them and they told me "we'll get you some but if you don't like them we'll have to throw them away" - since neither was much of a seafood eater. No crustaceans were thrown away. This story led to many successful sea-fishing stints for me. I could honestly live on fish (with the occasional lamb and pork thrown in).

    I'm very picky with seafood - I don't want to see any parts of the shrimp except the part I'm gonna eat. I love octopus and squid but I usually avoid them because I feel bad about eating such intelligent animals - and I never eat them when they're still moving (I live in Korea). Oysters are phenomenal, I love the taste of them raw especially, but I'll never get used to the texture. Love clams too.

    But fish, I almost never like. (Let's except tuna.) I don't mind trout or salmon. Otherwise, usually I don't like the smell of it.

    I do not like eel, maybe it's a mental thing, and I absolutely hate sea snails, which not a mental thing: those things smell like ... well, I'm pretty sure the mods would give me a vacation from the site if I described it with the clarity of which I am capable.

    I just love seafood. I started getting thick tuna steaks and grilling them outdoors. I've fed them to people who were skeptics at the mention, but now they love 'em, after eating them. A little hot mango-peach salsa on top...and it only takes about 5 minutes to grill one. Swordfish steaks are real good, too.

    On my present budget, I can't afford tuna anymore, so I get Tilapia or Pangaseus, a white, mild-flavored fish which is very cheap, cheaper than catfish. It's great baked, broiled, or fried.

    For frying fish (or pan-searing steaks), I suggest an outdoor propane burner. It eliminates the stovetop mess caused by splatter from frying, and doesn't stink up your kitchen. This is the way they do it in Louisiana: the men cook the fish outside, and the women stay inside and get the coleslaw, sides, and drinks ready. It works for me!

    I bought a package of mussels, and they are great when grilled outdoors! I put a little garlic, some mild cheese, and a little olive oil on each one...mmmm!

    I enjoy an occasional salmon fillet also. Put a little dill on them, and broil or bake.

    I go to a place here in Austin called "Seafood Market" which is like walking into a New Orleans fish house. They have crabcakes, shrimp, crawfish, fillets, gumbo, clam chowder, etc. and feature live Dixieland-style jazz on weekends. Half of it is a market, and the other side is the restaurant. Great place, great atmosphere.

    Love seafood, try to eat it and/or fish at least every other day!

    Spaghetti e Vongole is a long time standing favourite!

    Another vegetarian here, so an absolute no. But I still remember how good it tasted......
    Wäre das Faktum wahr, – wäre der außerordentliche Fall wirklich eingetreten, daß die politische Gesetzgebung der Vernunft übertragen, der Mensch als Selbstzweck respektiert und behandelt, das Gesetz auf den Thron erhoben, und wahre Freiheit zur Grundlage des Staatsgebäudes gemacht worden, so wollte ich auf ewig von den Musen Abschied nehmen, und dem herrlichsten aller Kunstwerke, der Monarchie der Vernunft, alle meine Thätigkeit widmen.

    I love salmon and other fishes. I'm not so fond of other creatures like crab, squid, etc.

    Yes. Though overfishing and destructive fishing practises are wreaking havoc on the oceans and destroying people's livelihoods and means of survival.

    Absolutely, but I prefer cold water fish.

    Difficult to come by in sunny Florida. =\

    Arctic char remains my favorite fish. Also Maine lobster. Shrimp is tricky business; I don't much care for these massive, tasteless things we commonly have here. The only shrimp that I've ever really liked are the North Sea "krabben"--tiny, delicious. Is it worth traveling across the pond for that alone? Nearly!
