I tried a lobster the other day, and it was gross.

So im a 27 year old male from New England, Boston to be precise, have always had tanks since I was 14, but have never eaten a lobster in my life. My dad is alergic to seafood and my mother worked at a seafood rest. half of my life but we would never eat seafood, never. 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.

Lobster is one of my favorite seafoods. Did you just dislike the taste, or is it the texture?

I tried Crayfish once, tasted disgusting like detergent.

Seafood is usually a safe bet, lobster, shark, octopus, shrimp, mussels, eels salmon, trout etc., have all gone down very well.

Pot luck and unusual if you come across a bad seafood dish, wild guess it may have come from effluent affected water or gone off

I don't see how people eat shrimp and lobster personally. Crustaceans are arthropods, which means they're bugs. Just because they live in water doesn't change that fact for me. I'd no sooner eat a lobster than a cockroach or spider. It's all the same thing.

People eat bugs all the time, ants, chocolate covered crickets or grasshoppers, tarantulas. Even here in the United States we eat bugs every day. Food is allowed to have a small bit of bugs in it. Not saying every bite of your burger is full of crickets, but you have, and will continue eating bugs. The only way you may not is if you grew all your own food, but even then you probably still would.

Besides crab legs are tasty! If they're bugs I say bring more

I'll admit that I unintentionally eat plenty of bugs... but I wouldn't scoop up a roach scurrying across the floor, steam it, and pop it in my mouth. I know lots of cultures do intentionally eat them, but I'll have to pass.

Can't stand seafood myself. Usually either the taste or texture throws me off, if not both.

I prefer crab, snow crab specifically.

See that is your mistake, you don't steam roaches, you grill them. Add a bit of BBQ sauce and mmmhhmmm good!

While lobster isn't my favorite, it certainly isn't gross!

This is what I had for dinner. Good ol fashion 'seafood' boil. Cajun crawfish, shrimp, potatoe, corn, sausage and crab legs (not pictured). I was so stuffed.

So did my ex and my cat. They'd snag all the meat I had cracked open and I'd get maybe one piece, while they were stuffed so much they couldn't walk >.<

Kind of funny that my 600th post, and your 700th, were both about steaming cockroaches.
