I’m a fan of seafood along side other flavours. Not huge on oysters. That’s about it though.

I don't like fish, but I love shellfish.

Fish just...smells and tastes like the underside of a wharf.

@br0kenrabbit: I reckon if you’d want something a little on the less fishy tasting side pick yourself up some Dory. It’s not as strong tasting as others.

One day, if I'm starving, have no food, no money and just one hand and someone offers me some...

...I might.

Meh, not a huge fan, but a Fish and Chips is in order on occasion. My friend tells me that doesn’t really count as fish as it’s fried and if they battered cigarette butts well enough, I’d love those too.

In my opinion, fish is a tad bland and is heavily reliant on its cooking method, spice, and flavours. But that can be said for anything too.

Love it. Everything from simple fish & chips, to fried calamari rings on toast, to shrimp in pesto sauce on pasta, to butter-seared scallops, to New Zealand mussels and spicy tomato sauce on black pasta, to seafood hot pots, to whole steamed crabs with Thai chili dipping sauce.

I don't live near enough to a seafood restaurant to frequent, but if I did, I'd be all over that place.

@madrocketeer: Yeah it’s a beautiful thing when you know there’s good seafood restaurants in your area. Nothing like it.

I live in Colorado, so to get decent seafood I need to go to a higher end restaurant but yeah, I enjoy good seafood. I recently hit up Jax in Denver and had a half dozen oysters, an oysters Rockefeller app, some king crab legs, and some Hackleback caviar. All good stuff.

For sure. Really dig those seafood bakes that have a little bit of everything. Shrimp tacos cab be very flavorful.

Eating seafood is good for the soul. Eating land animals is not.

So the native Americans and Africans have no soul?

@zzzamiibozzz: They do have a soul. I believe everyone does, but the soul is not purified. Eating vegetables, fruit, and seafood, following a Pescatarian diet, is good for the soul. Following only a carnivorous diet and eating land animals, not eating vegetables and fruit, I think makes you more aggressive. Because it makes you less moral about caring for land animals. Land animals feel pain and cry and scream when slaughtered but fish don't make a sound at all that you can hear. So eating fish is less immoral.

Lmfao. Oh gosh.

You know I witnessed a group of “adults” harass a friend of mine at his job. They literally got together to have a discussion on how to go about it. Lol talk about soulless.

omfg love it. I'd eat it every day if I could.

Unfortunately, good seafood is so damn expensive. Local salmon is like $15/lb (and I won't eat farm raised, sorry not sorry) and halibut is around $23/lb. I love shrimp, crab, and other shelfish too.

Not sure why it's so pricey I am pretty much on the water here.

So a fish doesn't feel pain, or make a sound when it dies....so that makes it OK? I suggest you go fishing, hook a fish, then put it on the deck and watch it gasp for air. Or maybe do what we do commercially and bring them up in nets by the thousands, then cram them into the hold of a ship.

I love meat and fish, but we can afford to be more humane in all of their treatments not just land animals.

Being raised in a filipino household, yes. Mostly fish, prawns and shrimp. I don't like clams, oysters or mussels though.

Love me a good fried or broiled seafood platter. At home I eat a lot of tuna or butterfly or popcorn shrimp.

Love seafood, it is one of my favorites. When I was younger I was a chef in seafood. I also used to work at a bar that also did raw shellfish and I would shuck oysters and clams and all that. I loved eating everything.

There is a dish that some of my puerto rican friends' parents make -- cannot think of what it called for the life of me. It's basically yellow rice with peas, pieces of shrimp, mussel, and something else baked in. It's really, really good.

Any idea what it's called? I believe their is a variation of it in other cuisines (mexican, philipino, greek).

I'm picky about seafood, but there is some I'll eat.

Mostly shrimp, clams and occasionally maybe some fish sticks or something.

EDIT: Forgot to mention tuna. I eat that more often than the other ones I mentioned.

@shellcase86: Sounds great. Can’t go wrong with that yellow rice. Beats the plain stuff any day.

Surprised no one has mentioned octopus. That stuff is great. Especially if it’s Greek style. I do feel bad eating octopus though. Lol

There's lots of regulations on supply. Which is for the best.

Yeah, I love seafood.

Fish, commonly, are animals which take the least pain during farming process.
