All the World Needs Is More Seafood!

You've probably heard the joke about being on a Seafood Diet- When you see food- you eat it--haha! Well, I could probably be on a real Seafood Diet. I love it all- Lobster, Crabmeat, Scallops, Shrimp (especially Black-Tiger Shrimp), Mussels, Clams and Oysters. Can't quite eat the Oysters raw though- and keep thinking they can be dangerous to eat if you get a bad one, so therefore usually eat Oysters cooked. Unfortunately, treats like Lobster tails are expensive but I have bought them and cooked them myself or I would order it on special occasions. I just went out for our anniversary dinner and splurged and had a lobster tail with a small steak! Very satisfying and my husband ordered the same. It really was a treat but I secretly wished I could have had two lobster tails instead. The great-tasting lobster here is from the cold Atlantic and very delicious, but I have had lobster from other places, too. Not everyone loves Seafood- How about you and what's your favourite?

Mostly our shrimp are frozen and although Ontario is far from the ocean we get a good supply of lobster from our East Coast and it is wonderful. Anna- Black Tiger Shrimp are- in my mind- the absolute best-tasting shrimp and I love scallops- seared on both sides and served with lemon and garlic sauce- delish!

@MarymargII - We do have "spiny lobster" here in California, which is smaller than Maine lobster. It tastes good. However, all the top restaurants fly in their lobster from the East Coast and keep them alive in large tanks until they are prepared for someone's dinner.

@DeborahDiane Yes, those are the absolute best- even Europe and Asia are importing them as a delicacy- hope the ocean can keep producing them for all of us--ha! Excellent taste. I never heard of spiny lobster but would probably love it too as I love Caribbean lobsters too.
I love crabs and prawns most. Although, we seldom buy them, because they are so expensive here. Besides, they can raise your cholesterol and be a cause for your blood pressure to rise (my husband has high blood), so we seldom eat them. Though, when hubby and I eat out, we would sometimes order crabs and prawns. I love that -Seafood diet joke. See food and eat it.
