I try to like it, but it just doesn't happen. I'll eat crab cakes on occasion, and I enjoyed some calamri at a little restaurant in Lavanga, Italy, but I would never order it. My friend who was with me that night told me to never order calamari again because he eats a lot of it and said what we had was by far the best he had had.

Basically, I don't write off everything that comes from the sea, but 90% of the time it doesn't jibe with my taste buds.

So you mean to tell me that the "art" and cost of that teaspoon of rice is worth the other slice of tuna? Eff that, give me the sashimi with a $1 side of sushi rice, i'll make it my goddamn self
totally fair, but supply and demand at that point...most are eating nigiri over sashimi

Strange, I find crab cakes to have a lot stronger fish taste/scent than steamed crab and most sushi other than the cooked eel like Unagi and Anago which I find too fishy smelling. I like sardines but the smell and taste is pretty strong.
I tend to feel cooking concentrates the smell and taste of the fish compared to its raw form for the most part.

Good quality sushi shouldn't be fishy tasting or smelling. Go to an authentic japanese owned and operated place and get sashimi or nigiri where the focus is on the individual fish quality and flavor. I don't go to cheap sushi places where sushi is a bargain or operated by non-japanese because I don't trust the quality of the fish or quality of the rice, which is just as important for sushi. I also don't get those crazy rolls because the sauces can cover up what may be poor quality fish.

I used to enjoy all those fancy overkill rolls, but they are so sickening and pretty much insulting (some at least) to the word sushi/maki. There are so many places popping up around here that have the most asanine sushi rolls, sitting i a puddle of unagi/spicy mayo/whatever the eff else combination.

if you want to know how fresh their fish is, try the mackeral

You're eating terrible crab cakes then, no offense. It's hard to find good crab cakes..But they have NO fish taste/smell if made with good meat and done correctly. Freaking wish shipping wasn't so damn expensive i'd send a few guys on the forum some samples. I would never eat a crab cake that smelled fishy The only time crab meat has a strong odor is when it's bad.

This x 300. About 75% of crabcakes on the "market" are crappy canned crab. On top of that, they use fish meat filler. On top of that, 40% of the cake is bread. If you eat a quality crabcake made with 96% fresh lump/superlump, you'd know the difference right away....however, the cost is usually up there as well.

Troof right there. Mackerel is the best gauge for freshness. It gets nasty and smells like piss fast, so if it has a clean taste, the place is legit.

Sushi was traditionally a snack food for eating on the run. They've fetishized it in modern history. Getting offended because someone is overdoing sushi is like getting mad because someone is putting bacon and mayo on a hamburger.

Who gets mad if you put bacon on anything? Those people need to be slapped.

Oysters, I can't stand them, in ANY form. Raw, they feel like lumpy snot, and cooked they have a pretty unpleasant texture. I know it's an aquired taste, and I've tried the best on the planet, but still can't get into them.

I never liked it because of that exact reason... the first couple times i had it, it wasn't too pleasant. Fishy, salty... blah. The next time i tried it, it was on a sushi platter (assorted) that I ordered. I ate if first to get it over with and was rather surprised at how good it was.

Also, octopus and razor clam sushi. I don't hate it, but its pointless IMO. The texture is rubbery-ish compared to actual fish, the flavor is bland. idk just doesn't work well.

I'm a purist with sushi, so when the unagi overpowers the spicy mayo that overpowers that overpower the rice... etc etc etc, the fish, which should always be the star of any maki roll, gets completely lost.

I get what you are saying, but i think the margin for error with a maki roll is just a tad bit smaller lol

Besides the texture, what do you think of the flavor? Ugh I LOVE the taste a briny, good sized oyster a squirt of lemon and a tiny dab of good red wine vinegar. You can't get a better fresh ocean flavor than that. Mignonette is good with them as well, but I grew up doing vinegar/lemon and I'm quite biased

I'm with you on gorgonzola/bleu cheeses. I can appreciate a good bleu cheese, but its too pungent for me. If a dish comes with it, I always ask if I can substitute goat cheese, its a nice creamy cheese with a little tang and not so... "in yo face i'm motherfvcking bleu cheeeeeeeeese"

I agree with this. Everytime I'm somewhere coastal I try them and I can never get it down without hot sauce and lemon juice. I'm sure I'll try them again in a few weeks down in Key West

That explains why I have only ordered mackerel once.....it was at a sub-par sushi joint and it tasted like a fisherman's knuckle.

I had conch nigiri, as well. I love conch, but ordering such a thing in St. Louis, where the nearest conch is 1500 miles away, was a GIANT MISTAKE, lol.

I don't mind the "sea" flavor (which is why I love cockles and welks) but I can't say the flavor is amazing. I am also under the belief that food tastes better cooked. The flavor of food develops when the water content is removed. Now, sure, some foods taste good raw (ie sushi) but as a rule of thumb, removing water from food intensifies the flavor, adds texture (my main problem with oysters, texture is nasty), etc. There are very few proteins I enjoy raw. I do enjoy a lot "rare" (meat, lobster, pizza dough, etc).

Southern oysters SUCK. They are creamy, salty, tangy. Oysters take much better to colder water, aka anything north of connecticut and washington state. They have "blue point" oysters out of virginia that are absolute garbage, unless they are from CT I wouldn't spend a nickel on them.

And to anyone else who tries them, take my advice and see if you like it. Figure a half teaspoon of a 1:1 ratio of fresh lemon juice and a good red wine vineage. I am seriously craving a dozen Salt Ponds right now, RI's top oyster by far

Chonch and octopus are very difficult to get right, but when it is done right, it's amazing. I LOVE grilled octopus. The greeks got that down pat.
