I had some really good, spicy boiled Crawfish for lunch today with a cup of seafood Gumbo. Mmm mmm good. And some people I know don't even like seafood...such as my friend Alyssa. She was in for quite a shock a few years back when she came down here for a visit and of course I took her to some classic, old school, low key seafood joints in N.O. She was like "why do you guys eat so much seafood?" Hello! South Louisiana has some of the best seafood in the world....crabs, shrimp, oysters, crawfish, catfish...it's all good.

God bless the wonderful marine creatures that taste so good on French bread!!!

I never learned to enjoy eating those things . . . . sure looks good but that whole "Suck the Head" thing just doesn't make it with me.

Want some seafood - c'mon up . . . we'll grill some Halibut . . . or Salmon . . .

Nah thats real. There are no visibly obvious or subtle signs anywhere that it was altered.

As for me and seafood, I like tuna, crab, and shrimp.

I had a pescatore pizza tonight. Tuna, prawns, anchovies. Goregeous!

I love seafood; Morecambe Bay shrimps are the best. By Royal Appointment to HM Queen Elizabeth, so they can't be bad...  Smile

Don't forget the "Eat the Tail" part. That's the reward for sucking the head! Nothing better than a good crawfish boil with potatoes and corn and super spicey.

They may be bugs but they're damn tasty as are lobster, shrimp, and the best one of them all, the Morton Bay Bug!

I love most things that come out of the sea; blue mussels, brown crabs ("Knieper" in low German), shrimps, salmon and calamari in particular. Halibut, herring, tuna and codfish are quite edible, too... as are lots of fresh water fish.

Good thing I'm pretty full right now, if else I'd blame MSYtristar for my hunger!

I love seafood - crab cakes are actually my favorite. However, as much as I love lobster, I am not eating that icky green part - It is not a delicacy!. Yuck.

The liver, or "tomalley." I don't like it much either, though some people think it's delicious.
The roe, or "coral," actually is a delicacy.

Nope, we can grill some Walrus Steaks . . . that's "seafood" isn't it?

I really do like all manner of seafood . . . shucks, I live in Alaska - can't get any better than that . . . I simply can't get past the crawfish thing.

I was in New Orleans in the late 90s during the "Crawfish Festival" . . . I managed to survive just eating 'regular' food. But I did try the crawfish boil later that weekend. I couldn't resist . . . some friends had a huge 50 gallon cooler filled with a fresh crawfish boil . . . they brought it to where we were (opposite side of Lake Ponchartrain at a State Park - can't remember the name) - in a Blackhawk  biggrin  . . . what the hell, the chopper had to come out there anyway . . . the potatoes, the corn, everything was awesome - just can't get past the crawfish.  cry

Yes they are top notch . . . wanna nice twist, substitute crumbled steamed halibut for the crab . . .

The best seafood in my opinion lies along the northeastern corridor. On up into Boston and Maine.

I don't know if you yanks get Rick Stein on your side of the pond, but he is far and away my favourite tv chef, his enthusiasm for seafood is infectious. He runs a seafood restaurant in Padstow, Cornwall.

Drool! Now thats what I am talking about! I have always wanted to go visit Alaska anyways......
I really love Coho Salmon (I think that is what they are called). Basically it is wild caught, cold water salmon. Not this color enhanced farm raised crap they mostly sell down here in Florida. I love to grill it on a cedar wood plank. Oh YUM!

About 9 years ago I went to MSY with a friend and he took me to a restaurant, a little hole in the wall, near the end of one of MSY's runways. Him and his whole family gorged on crawfish and turtle soup (GASP!). I ended up with a grilled cheese sandwich. They all thought that was hilarious! I just cannot get past how gross the crawfish look inside not to mention sucking them out! Shudder.....
My husband loves them so I do cook them up on occasion for him but I sure as heck wont touch them! LOL!
I also despise lobster! I think I am about the only female in the world who does not like the stuff. I have tried lobster time and time again at all kinds of restaurants from Red Lobster (I know, I know, they suck) to Charlies Steak House (a very expensive, uppity place here in Tampa and a few other cities that has the best steak and food ANYWHERE!) I even bought one (I had them kill the poor thing, no way I could it!) and cooked it up myself for my husband! Still didnt like it.
Just last week we went to Disney and stayed at the Wilderness hotel thing, anyways we ate at a restaurant near Planet Hollywood (it was a huge floating boat restaurant, I forget what it was called) and my husband had some lobster that was from Australia, again, as usual, I tried a bite, WHOA! Wait a minute! Whats this?! I found a lobster I might actually be able to eat! The waiter said this kind of Australian lobster is the only kind he liked too! Now where can I find Australian lobster in Tampa? Sigh.
As far as seafood goes, my favorite thing in the world is Alaskan King Crab legs!! Oh I can go to town on that stuff!

Just noticed this thread.....sounds like you visited Harbor Seafood on Williams Blvd just north of the airport. Hate the wait, but love the food!
