I personally prefer my fish meal not wiggling and writhing on my plate, in mouth, nor swimming in my stomach. I don't think that I have to concern myself with this, because I am allergic to all shellfish. I have often wondered if lobsters feel any pain as they are being boiled alive. I am not able to consume any of the crustaceans. Lobster, crab, mollusks, oysters, scallops, etc.
I do have some favorite flatfish that I enjoy. Halibut is one of my favorites. There are two ways that I like it, one baked in a beer batter, and the other broiled with sprigs of parsley, and patter of butter, fresh lemon squeeze, and salt and pepper.
I love fresh caught rainbow trout (deboned), stuffed with fresh herbs, outside buttered, salt and peppered. Placed alongside trout a few fresh veggies, then wrapped in foil and placed on a hot campfire. Delicious!!
The only salmon I eat is the Wild Caught Alaskan Sockeye Red Salmon. I prefer to have it cold along with rice and a few veggies.
Must not forget my swordfish. I havn't had any in so long, I forgot how good it is. It is out of my price range now, ouch!!
Tuna is a different story. I used to eat alot of tuna casseroles when I was a kid, and also made them myself years ago. Now, with all the mercury scares regarding tuna, I kinda have backed away from tuna. The only tuna I prefer is the Albacore White, and it has to be dolphin free. This is about it, except for those fishsticks that you never seem to get to the bottom of the box, nor the bottom of the bag.
Now let's hear your fish stories..............
