Do you like seafood a lot?

I do. Some people may be allergic to them just like my classmate back in college. He said whenever his family cooked crabs [I don't know if he would react the same way with other seafood] they would get him another viand because he would really feel bad even just by looking at those. But in my case, I'm grateful to the Lord because I don't have any allergies. I can eat what I like, and that would include seafood. I like small squids, shellfish, shrimps of any kind, and crabs. Sadly, they're just getting more and more expensive these days.

doctors warn about the allergenic content of seafoods like crabs and shrimps. they have way too high than normal, so if you have allergies, better stay away from these type of seafoods. some, though, carry medication to counter whatever allergies may ensue following a good take of shrimps or crabs.

Indeed, there are people who have allergies to those and since the children of Israel in Moses' time are still ignorant about medical and scientific findings, the Almighty just told them not to eat it and that's that because they won't understand too detailed explanations the way we understand them now as mankind at that time was in its infancy stage. Proof: Leviticus 11:10-12  And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you:  They shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, but ye shall have their carcasses in abomination.  Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you. Not only allergies that the Lord tried to protect them from but also other diseases (e.g. gout, high blood pressure, etc.) and undernourishment it may bring if the intake is too much for those who were not allergic to it.

that's great information, clowdine, and thanks for the enlightenment. indeed, certain seafoods not only trigger allergies, but also causes certain diseases. remember some recent news about a killer variety of fish, called locally as butete. so, god so created things with their individual and specific purposes for existence.

Yeah, thank goodness I too have no allergies for seafoods. I really like seafoods a lot specially here in out country that shirmps, squids and other viand of fishes are getting expensive. So everytime I went a party, I always make sure to target those seafood dishes. :)

I also do the same when I'm in a feast. I always make it a point that I have seafood in my plate. I regard seafood as the star among the food items. And I think we're not the only ones. Otherwise it will not cost a meager 12 pieces of swahe P80 for just half a kilo of it, as an example.

It sounds like you have a slight idea how delicious they are. Have you tasted seafood before, at least crabs and prawns? Or you have been allergic to seafood since childhood. I've learned some people just acquire allergies later in life. I used to think it's something a person is born with.

Hi, clowdine. No, I don't really like the deep seafood as much. I do like regular fish. I like whitings and flounder. But, I really don't like fish that has bone in it. It takes away my enjoyment when eating the fish. All the other seafood, I don't touch..

Like them very much! My hometown is a town beside sea, so we eat seafood very often. Old people can use seafood to make all kinds of delicious foods! When i have my holiday, grandma usually fry some little fishes, I like them very very much. For the price, yes, the price actually rises much, but for their nutrition, I think they deserve it. Happy mylot!

When I was in grade five, I stayed in Northern Samar, in my mother's home town which was surrounded by beaches. Regularly, we got to collect shellfish and the usual viand that we came up with was boiled shellfish and then we put on some calamansi and a little salt. MSG products were not widely used there. My uncle who is my mother's younger brother would always go fishing and when he came home, he usually brought heaps of fish of different kinds.

Sometimes there are foods that many consider delicious but surprisingly not appealing to some. There are instances we don't like certain foods but we simply just can't explain why. For example, I used to like a fish called "dalagang bukid" (this may be a freshwater fish, I'm not sure but I just used this as an example because I can't think of a true sea food that I hate and I also don't know the reason why I hate it) when I grew older, I learned to dislike it but I don't know exactly what made me do.

Although prawns are a bit expensive in our country, at least we get to eat about 95 percent of what we pay for, unlike with shell fishes or other types of crustaceans. But I prefer the medium shrimps better. It's called "swahe" in our vernacular tongue. I like it's sweet yummy taste. And it's so versatile. So many recipes can be made out of it. But most of the time, I just cook "halabos". It's for least effort, time, and cost but for the same great taste.
