Combinations that just strike you as wrong

I will start, hoping you understand the intent.

Citrus with Poultry.
Garlic with Poultry.
Fish Taco's.
Scrambled Eggs in Rice.
Fried Eggs randomly placed on otherwise Eatable Dishes and Sandwiches.

Well, all of those are pretty good in my book, especially Fish Tacos, so I guess it's just a matter of different strokes for different folks.

That is why the thread title is "Combinations that just strike YOU as wrong".

None of those things strike me as wrong at all. In fact I love them.

Particularly garlic with poultry and fish tacos, which I could eat every day of my life.

Wrong .... hmmmmm... I love creative cooking and unique pairings.

Savory cooking (as in a hot dish) with cream cheese, maybe?

Anything whatsoever using Cool Whip.

I agree with you on citrus with poultry and fish tacos.

Also not a big fan of sweet flavors/sauces with savory dishes. e.g. brown sugar glaze on ham. fruit sauces with duck, sweet and sour Chinese dishes.

Fish Taco's - I agree

Scrambled Eggs in Rice - I like scrambled egg in fried rice (NOT scrambled WITH the rice IN the eggs, scrambled separately THEN added to the fried rice)

Garlic in mashed potatoes

Starting threads like this without trying to step on anybody's toes because they like something that you don't.

A combination that will likely not work.

I love Moroccan chicken with lemons and olives. And I'll take you for some kickass fish tacos here some day.

I agree with sweet ham but I love Homemade Sweet and sour chicken and pork since I started making it and it is more a balanced flavor.

Pineapple and ham on pizza
