Want some seafood - c'mon up . . . we'll grill some Halibut . . . or Salmon . . .
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!
I believe I can fly.....
