Because I can get it, lobster. When living in Florida, though, it was rock shrimp and a kind of crab claw that is very seasonal (the crab actually lives and grows a new one, so they are very restricted, can't remember what they're called). I do believe sometimes that having every food available every day of the year lulls us into complacency and probably is bad for the environment. Both of these were very seasonal and, at least up until 1990, really not available except locally.

I can also get excellent IQF scallops here and just love them seared with a cream and sherry sauce, over linguini. Yummm....

Stone crab! When we would visit Florida, my dad would provide a very detailed description of the harvesting of one claw, trying to gross us out. Didn't work.

I don't know, maybe it is cruel to harvest the claw like that, but it sure is tasty!!

Oh yeah, stone crab are here to be caught, but getting rarer. They've been over harvested.

My absolute favorite seafood is seared scallops. The giant sea scallops, not the little bay ones.

Seared until slightly golden on the outside, in butter, and still only very slightly cooked in the middle. Melt-in-your-mouth yummy!

Served with zucchini, onions and green/red/yellow peppers sauteed in butter and crusty garlic bread. OMG, I'm drooling....

Hey, do you figure that fish ever get tired of seafood?
