1. fresh wild sockeye salmon

2. jumbo tiger prawns, the big buggers nearly the size of your fist

3. lobster

I'm not much of a seafood guy. Limited availability here, expensive and usually of lessor quality (so I'm told).

I love bacon wrapped scallops smoked, finished in frying pan or baked, then rolled in real maple syrup. Lick the plate. (scallops are a shellfish? who knew ... I woulda believed it if someone said they where white balls floating in the sea)


Did ya know prawns are meat eaters and shrimp are vegetarians? This, I was told, is why prawns have a stronger flavour.

1. Tuna. All kinds all styles. Period just don't overcook it.

2. Tie Peconic bay scallops (when you can get them it's getting really hard sadly) *and* oysters. Ditto Nick P on the clams man are they sweet.

3. Real Sea Bass. Not this Chilean stuff they try to sell as sea bass.

Chilean Sea Bass... what a marketing ploy... take a fish nobody will buy (the Patagonian toothfish), change the name so it sounds familiar, yet still mildly exotic. Now people can't buy enough of it. They've had to restrict harvesting so that they aren't over fished.

You got that right on the Chilean Sea Bass thng Chris.

I happen to like it but I can remember when monkfish was a trash fish. Ugly looking sucker but sure is tasty.

It is interesting that you pick steelhead. You must get em fresh out there. On the Lake Erie Tributaries, it is a HUGE sport fish, but by the time they begin running to mate, they are a good fight, but basically are decomposing while still alive. Most folks up here,excluding Greg and his in-laws, won't even bother with them! Woodman

Woodman we get steelhead as they hit the rivers they are beautiful.
They come in and spawn but then return to the ocean the really big one could have made trip a few times.

Oh Jim, the freshwater ones die after spawning. Often times you will see them in the shallow creeks flopping around in the shallows dying. It's sad really! Woody

I once devoured a 4 pound lobster at Palm in NYC. Had it with all the sides, too. Asparagus, potatoes, salad. Afterwards, we took a walk and had sushi for dessert. Boy, those were the daze!
Did ya eat it like Meg Ryan in "When Harry Met Sally?"
