Crabs and oysters...two types of seafood that I just can't do. Used to go crabbing with my Dad when I was a kid, though, in and around Port Townsend. That was fun. But eating that stinky stuff...no thanks.

Clams, mussels, shrimp, prawns, langouste, lobster...bring it on!


I love 'em all. (Had to look up langouste, but now that I know it's just a variety of lobster, I'm sure I'd love it.)

:yes:

Edited to add: I can't deny I'm a little surprised by your objection to crab. I know lots of people who are put off by oysters' "squishy" texture, but crab meat's texture is very similar to lobster or prawns. I know others who object to the "huge insect" look of shellfish, LOL, but again that would describe both lobsters & prawns. Therefore since you aren't put off by the texture or the "bug-like" appearance of lobsters or prawns, I can't figure out what it might be about crab that you dislike.

Fair enough! I realize everybody's food preferences & dislikes are every bit as valid as my own. It's not required for me to understand why somebody dislikes something. Lots of people think I'm crazy because I hate sweet potatoes. And s'mores. It's funny how I love chocolate, love graham crackers, love marshmallows, but can't stand s'mores, LOL. I can't explain it, because I don't understand it either.

I just don't find the odor pleasant and since it tastes like it smells...

BTW, you are not alone on either sweet potatoes or s'mores.

I grew up in Port Aransas Texas (before I left to join the Marine Corps at 18) and to say seafood was a staple in our lives is an understatement.
I particularly like strong tasting pelagics. My Mom made the best tasting fish patties with king fish (mackerel)

I remember as a kid spending the day at the beach catching blue crab around the jetties,
and digging coquinas. Later that evening there would be a #3 washtub on the stove to boil the crabs.
A pot of coquina soup to go with it.

On super special days we would have stone crab claws.

I had to look up "pelagics" and "coquinas". You'd think somebody (like me) who loves virtually all varieties of seafood would already be familiar with those words...

Ive not had coquina soup (more like a chowder I guess) in over 30 years. They are very small and it
took a <censored>load, but with 6 siblings we had fun gathering them a litle at a time between swimming and crabbing.

I admit I didn't realize those little "teepee-shelled" things were edible. Are they tasty? Chewy?

I've never seen them offered for sale in any restaurant, store, seafood market, etc.

Wouldn't surprise me. If I was desperate to find some, that would be one of the first places I'd check.

I beleive they are related to clams and not too chewy. they are so small it does not take much to masticate them.

They are also called Limpets.

The Hawaiians call them Opihi, and eat em raw =)

My husband and I watch "Alone" on the History channel whenever it is a new season. I remember limpets, because one survivor practically lived off them.


I knew I was addicted to the show when one afternoon I went out back and saw a dead squirrel and for one second thought, "LUNCH!"
(Only for one second, though.)

Edit to add: Season 6 of Alone premieres on Thursday June 6 at 7 p.m. PT on History.
