I love anything that swims and all kinds of shellfish. I voted for oysters, but I'll take anything on the list. Scallops and Lobster are way up there, but a good fried grouper sandwich is hard to beat. And though it's not seafood, a pan-fried rainbow trout with a very light coating gets me half-way to heaven.

I voted for shrimp, because it is my absolute favorite seafood. Scallops are what I like the next best, preferably wrapped in bacon. Yum!!

Here is one if my favorite shrimp recipes.

I LOVE lobster and shrimp... but I dont get to indulge due to my being a "starving student" on a tight budget! If I had the funds though I'd be eating lobster everyday!

More affordable seafood that I eat quite often would be salmon. I buy fresh, smoked salmon tips from my grocer and eat that with a big salad for dinner. Mmmmmmm. I also buy the pre-portioned salmon fillets and make garlic or herb crusted salmon. Yum. SALMON is so tasty!

Count me in among the "I love it all" gang. I can think of cuts of tuna, swordfish, shark that I don't like .... but in general - I can't find anything not to love (okay - eel had to be put on the plate, and I had to eat it, before I would accept the idea ....).

Scallops get my vote, hands down. It sounds a little silly, but I've always loved how their versatility makes them like "chicken breasts of the sea"

Hands down it's crab for me. Must be bought alive though, not frozen. I find the crabs in Asia a lot tastier than those I've had in the U.S. Must be the warmer waters?

I had to vote for "other". I like everything listed, with the exception of octopus, and I just haven't tried that yet.

Ronjon, I have to admit, I'm growing very accustomed to the local fish available here. Since I'm a transplant, I was never exposed to whitefish or smelt until I moved up here. We get smoked whitefish at work, and I think it's really good. To me, smelt tastes like fish sticks, which I love, but haven't had in years. That's also something that we get a work, breaded and frozen, and just drop it in a deep-fryer for employee break. I've tried a few Walleye fillets, and like that as well. Never had pike.

PeppA keeps telling me that one of these years, she's going to take me smelt-dipping. The only thing I'm not looking forward to is the cleaning process.

i have yet to meet a fish that i didn't want to eat in some way, raw or cooked.
the only fish that i don't like sashimi style is squid, but i love squid steamed, broiled, fried, acid cooked, or grilled.

octopus is delicious as sashimi, imo. it's slightly sweet, and if fresh, sliced properly, and top grade, not tough at all. octopus is also delicious prepared mediterranean style. i've heard that it is beaten over and over to tenderize it.

i even like monk fish livers, and sea urchin (topped with a raw quail egg, gunkan style).

Am I the only one here that doesn't eat seafood?
Wish I liked it - but at least I love to go fishing. Does that count?

Gotta apologize.

AllenMI mentioned smelt.

Have not seen them for years where we are.

But they may be number one.
