This old Mexican I worked with got me hooked on dried seaweed for a summer. The trifecta for me are calamari, salmon, and oysters. The best calamari is served in olive oil.
    Anchovies, like every other meat, I try to appreciate for taste all by itself and not after alteration, so if it fails to sway my tastebuds alone, I generally have a lower POV about them. In reality, however, I am the only person I know who orders and generally likes anchovies on pizza, but I also like pine nuts on it. The first calamari I ever had was fried squid rings and they seemed like rubber bracelets, but other versions of the meat I've had since have tasted great. It's usually a bad sign if I don't like the fried version of some meat.

    Sorry to hear that, since seafoods of all kinds are my preference to land foods and I seriously doubt ALL forms of seafood are allergic. I used to want to hurl at the mere touch of squash on my tongue every Thanksgiving in New England, but got over that when I was 16, unlike guacamole and sometimes tofu, neither of which I knowingly choose to eat at any given time (the latter is bearable in egg drop soup), because they all have the consistency of vomit.

    Seems there is an overlap of definitions.

    Thinking about seafood is making me hungry. I like yellowfin "ahi" tuna, Halibut, and large North Pacific prawns and oysters. Grouper and snapper are good from Florida too. I love Maine lobster if it does not break the wallet, lol. I also buy fresh Atlantic salmon and tried to get the family to eat more fish due to the omega oils and other health factors. I'm the seafood connoisseur as others prefer chicken. If seafood is not fresh, the texture and taste greatly suffers.

    Too bad they are also animals...


    Hmmm... This thread almost makes me crave for some seafood I used to eat before becoming vegetarian.

    For example this:

    It brings me good old memories back! I was also eating anchoivies spread on bread like that, my grandma had her own recipe how to make them really really delicious, perfect to put on the bread!

    I haven't much yellowfin if at all, but must try halibut again. Had snapper once, but not grouper. Must eat more prawn and maybe krill.

    I prefer seafood 75% over poultry and face the same struggle with family suppers.

    I'm willing to eat fresh mackerel and anchovies if they can be found, but am probably going to seek out sardines with added dressings to put some flavour in them. I will fry smelts in oil and seasoning instead of just cook them.

    Not out for pufferfish just yet.
