if you LOVE seafood, what is your top 5 in order of preference? Here's mine: eel (including fried and also unagi in sushi) squid (also octopus or pulpo as the Spanish call it) lobster mussels (especially when prepared as moules marinier) pickled herring or smoked kipper - tied for 5th

It's very popular at seafood restaurants here in the Philippines.There are a lot of seafoods here that most of the foreigners enjoyed especially here in Mactan, Cebu. Have you heard about it?...I feel hungry right now!hehehe...You tempt me!:O

I have been a fan of seafood since long time now as I like to appreciate what the sea offers us. I prefer Shrimp in number one as I adore that in my salads,then number two is Lobster, then Oyster, crabs and finally tuna fish as smoked Tuna before a meal is just superb for me.

Oh oh oh...you reminded me of another favorite for me: Ahi tuna....i LOVE that. Also raw oysters....you're right - gorgeous! Oh boy I could just live on seafood and I wouldn't even have to repeat my dishes for a couple of weeks as there are so many wonderful ones to choose from. Now I KNOW I have to move to the coast!

you're right - that makes more sense since there is sooo much good seafood and I left off plenty myself. You reminded me too of whitebait which I love fried in batter....that definitely is up there too.
