Seafood- raw or cooked?

which are your preferences?
i'm more about raw seafood. oysters on the half, sashimi..... nothing tastes more fresh or more pure and as near to perfection as something could be as them, in my opinion. the taste of the sea is a lovely flavor. not that it isn't a shock to the palate upon first taste, but you give it a chance for a second or two, and you'll realize how lovely seafood can be.

there are several seafoods that i like cooked, but i very much prefer uncooked.

what is your predominant way of enjoying seafood?

You know what I am going to say Luvs
My vote is for RAW!!! Although I loved cooked seafood (steamed lobster is one of my favorite things) nothing can compare to raw fish. Raw tuna, salmon, oysters, you name it and I will devour it. Yes there is a little mental block you need to get over with that very first bite, but if you have an open mind then you will not regret it.

I'm all about raw seafood too. It's very satisfying. The best thing I ever had was a thinly sliced fresh scallop that was alive about 20 seconds before I ate it. I know it sounds gross to a lot but it was so sweet and good!

Elfie, I know what you mean - the scallops if fresh, are just too awesome for words!

Yes, and I think this is about as fresh as you can get! lol These were still in their beautiful white shell still alive - I almost felt guilty but I got over it as soon as I tasted them!

I've tried a few raw things, clams, oysters. But I much prefer my seafood cooked. Raw clams and oysters on the half shell gulped up is like looking at something I dont want to mention...ok it looks like snot lol, no way I can stomach that.

I love it raw. YUMMMERS!
Then again I've had some pretty wonderful cooked shrimp, crab and clams.
I don't really like many kinds of cooked fish though. I'm the only one I know that
doesn't like salmon.

I used to hate cooked salmon. I am just now beginning to appreciate it more. Raw it is one of my favorites, but cooked I am not crazy about it. I have a feeling that will change over time though.
