Seafood - seafood

Where do you usually buy it and how do you prepare it? I love shrimps. I buy a bag of prepared frozen shrimps at the grocery store and just slightly microwave them. I don't care for deep fried seafood. Better when it's just plain. What about you?

I like the spider crab we have. I just add homemade mayo (the kind you make by hand with just the egg yolk). I also like abalone either in a salad (mayo again) or in a thick meaty soup with diced abalone, bread crumbs and parmesan cheese. Squid is also wonderful in many ways and so is shrimp (I like fried shrimp with garlic).

You are a gourmet, never heard of abalone. Need to try it.

In my country, Chile, we have a lot of seafood so we have a culture of eating it. Abalone used to be fairly common here but it was fished almost to extincion because it was exported to Japan where it is a delicacy. Now we can only take it out when in season although there are always the poachers. They are wonderful!

Oh, I see - it's a delicacy! I'm interested, maybe I'll find it some place. Sad though that you are deprived from it in your own country, not fair. But still you get it from time to time. Have a good day, take care :)

Mmm, shrimp is indeed tasty, but I think I'd have to put salmon as my number one favorite. Lightly seasoned with tamari, lemon juice, dill, and topped with a little bit of vegenaise before frying or baking it. If I bake it, I like to set the oven on broil at the very end to crisp up the top and brown the vegenaise a little.

I love baked salmon. So good, healthy but costy too.

It's true, it does get spendy...I don't eat it a lot, but that makes it all the more special when I do. :)

I so much agree with you. It's very special when it's valued. A real treat!

Depends. I like my squid and calamari deep fried. Then I like my crabs and prawn to be steamed and cook with chilli and curry. Fish I like them fried.

I tried fried calamari - very good, liked it. I love fish. Favourite: salmon baked in foil. You even don't need to add anything to it. It's good just in its own juices

You don't add any spices or anything to the salmon?

No, nothing, just the salmon. Sometimes you can add some dill.

I absolutely love shrimp and fish. Fried giant shrimp and haddock are the business!

What type of fish is haddock? I have heard of it but never tried it. How do you prepare it?

I like shrimp. I like to grill or fry them, but I will also eat them boiled. I also like fried, steamed, or raw oysters....

My favorite seafood is squid. I just love squid, it is the only seafood that survived in my favorite list. I used to love crab and shrimp so much but now my likeness for these two is slowly declining. I dont know why.. Maybe because I cant eat the two often unlike the squid and crabs and shrimps are hard to eat because you still have to open them up.

I don't remember I tried squid at all. I need to try it for sure!
