I can't believe you didn't like it. Do you like/eat crab?

Speaking of bugs, ants and crickets are really delicious too! Especially lemon ants!

For me I really prefer Lobster grilled, instead of boiled/steamed/broiled. Ill admit when they cook especially in the oven, they smell awful. But grilled with salt and pepper and I dont even need butter! MMM!

Halve them, and charcoal grill them with a little salt/pepper. Just have to be careful not to overcook lobster, it's horrible and rubbery overcooked.

My favorite ocean food is blackened swordfish, so tastey.

We just got back from Kauai and our last night we had a massive seafood bbq. We made scallops, tiger shrimp, marlin, mahi mahi and wahoo.

The beauty of this cinderella of the sea, is that if you overcook it, all is not ruined. Keep the heat on, it will become tender again. Hot wok is the best- get some colour on that squid! yum yum yum

yup, cook it quickly or cook it for a long time like in a broth/stew to keep it tender. What! we're eating mollusks too?!

Yeah I know. There is an old saying along the lines of cook it for 3 minutes or cook it for 3 hours. I love squid.

Dilution is the solution for the pollution.

Mollusks. Clams: on the half shell-Stuffed-steamed-in sauce over pasta, it's all good, mussels - in sauce over pasta, scallops, squid, oysters.
Just put them all at once into a seafood pasta along with some lobster and crab meat.

What I am saying, if I am saying anything is: Yeah baby, that's what I am talkin about.

My father was a commercial fisherman for the first 15 years of my life. Needless to say, I love seafood.

Scallop season is open here, just haven't been motivated to go.

So me and my gf have been getting into diff. kinds of fish and decided to get a couple of lobsters the other day to see if I liked it. So my mother says to steam them because it is better than boiling. We rip the tails off and put them to the side, and I start messing with the claws and legs, by the time I got one claw open my girl says shes done. I said "what, I havent even tasted it yet and your done". So I try some of the claw meat, "Nasty", she says the tail is the best part, like filet, so I try a small piece of the tail, "Gross", and everything gets scooped onto my girls plate and I ate the rest of the bread for dinner. Lesson learned, $15 wasted.
There's your problem. it wasn't cooked properly. If prepared right, it taste so much better. Go to a reputable restaurant and order the lobster. Personally, I prefer my lobster stir fried in a wok

You should take the hour trip up to Maine and buy one from a lobster shack somewhere. The fact that you cooked and ate your first lobster in the same setting probably spelled failure. I grew up in Maine and still undercook a lobster from time to time. But if you still refuse to eat it, I wouldn't mind if you would overnight a few down to PA for me!

My grandfather was in the Navy and my family (grandparents included) spent a lot of time on the gulf side of Florida. He'd dig up clams at the beach, of he saw a crab large enough it was his - and it ended up dinner. If it lives in the water, I want to eat it.

My best guess is that when he was stationed on Iwo Jima in 1944, anything they caught/found crawling on the beach was a lot better than what the mess was serving haha

Bleh, I'll pass on seafood. The only crustacean I can eat is popcorn shrimp and once, once, I had tuna sushi that I didn't mind. I can't stand anything else though. Tried king crab, never again.

Crawfish is disgusting or I ate it wrong idk. One time we were at a restaurant and my sister gave me a little piece to try had to run outside and vomit. But I also tried sushi once same thing but tried it somewhere else it was way better that time.
