i like fish and although i don't like to cook it, I am lucky enough to live in Key west where every restaurant serves fish. I expecally love sushi grade tuna. And I do miss a good Maine lobster, and Maryland bluecrab.

Love fish & seafood. Eat most of it, fresh, because I live on the East coast and two blocks from the ocean. That gives me the opportunity to buy fish freshly caught. Love swordfish, salmon, eel, squid, snails, scrod, scallops & shrimp. Prefer crab to lobster.

Love tuna salad...particularly from Whole Foods Market...made with Fuji apples & cranberries.

I do limit my tuna in a can because of the mercury.

I eat Tuna reg. in my salads. I buy the stuff in the pouch. I also like cod and a few other white fish and shrimp. Have tried salmon many diff. ways, but I can't seem to develop a taste for it. i should eat more than I do because I don't eat red meat.

I like it all! And with living near the Gulf, we enjoy fresh seafood, the best! My family, however, does not share my enthusiasm, so I don't cook it often at home. I also enjoy sushi, and that elimintes the "fish smell" that my family hates.

I love just about all seafood - fish, shellfish, squid (tried eel in the UK, but haven't had it since). Other than tuna salad in a sandwich, DH will only eat shellfish, so I only make it once a week and broil a chicken breast for him. When she was little, my younget daughter's favorite dish was squid in ink sauce (we lived on the coast and fresh seafood was cheap and plentifull), but when friends stayed for dinner she would tell them we were having 'spaghetti balls) so our meal would not elecit the "YUK" response. Only when mother's called asking for the recipe would the truth come out.

Reading over the posts on this thread, I see that some of you are mentioning a reaction such as hives, breathing problems, etc. I just want to say that I also had such a reaction in a retaurant when I had ordered shrimp in lobster sauce. It was so severe I had to be rushed to emergency.

The doctor thought I might have suddenly developed an allergy to the iodine in the fish but it turned out that I am allergic to MSG and I was in anaphylactic shock. This is nothing to take lightly; it can kill you because it paralyzes the muscles and your lungs are muscles.

I had been having headaches which were diagnosed as migraines but it turned out to be the allergy. Back then, there were many more products in the grocery which contained MSG than there are now. I was even using Accent when cooking at home and it is pure MSG. When my daughter had headaches, it turned out she is allergic to MSG also.

This is one more reason to read labels very carefully. I stick to major brands because a lot of generic brands have the MSG. Many people are allergic and don't know it.

I like fish and seafood. My new favorite recipe involves a salmon fillet, brush top and sides with mustard, coat with a combination of panko and crushed pistachios. Bake. I don't remember if it was a Spark recipe or if I found it somewhere else, but it was delicious. Now I am going to try it with pecans.

I love eating fish at times. Tilapa or orange roughy are my favorites. Many
years ago, I enjoyed eating canned tuna, but I never buy it any longer.
My DH will only eat fish occasionally. I don't cook any at home. A few
times a year, we will eat fish in restaurants. I never worry about mercury.
I've never had allergies to any seafoods, except the two times I ate at
Red Lobster. I have eaten different meals there, and I always get so
sick, right after a few bites. It seems way too rich for me.

I enjoy most seafood and fish. Shrimp, scallops, and red snapper are my favorites. Once in a great while i'll have tuna from a can. No, i'm not concerned about mercury,,etc because i don't eat these things often. More fish than the other. I'll also have clam chowder aout every other month or so.

I emoticon seafood & fish. Yum!!! Shrimp & crab are my favorites. Occasionally I'll eat tuna out of a can, but I prefer the fresh stuff. I also enjoy spicy tuna sushi. I'm not too concerned about mercury because I don't eat it all that often -- and when I do, I choose fish, etc. that is lower in mercury. A couple of times in the summer, we have a crab feast with my family. So much fun!!

Keep smiling!!

We're not big fish eaters, but I enjoy a nice salmon for dinner. Tuna fish sandwiches are also yummy.

Joy - the first two serious reactions I had were after eating at Long John Silvers, I got just a regular fish fillet. Of course, it's probably all fried in the same oil, so could be that there was shrimp in the oil too. I don't know.

I do eat tuna from a can. I haven't tried any thing else from a can though. I don't like fishy tasting fish. I do love cod, salmon, bluefish, shrimp, scallops, lobster (when on the coast), Walleye, and many others. I do have to slow down on eating shrimp because they have a lot of cholesterol in them. My triglycerides have been out of control and the doctor told me not to eat a lot of shrimp. So all you can eat shrimp is over for me. :-( I don't really think too much about the mercury. I suppose now that I am eating more fish I should check that out a little more carefully.

Sounds like you have the same type allergy I do. I can't eat anything that has a shell - shrimp, lobster, etc, but the fish don't seem to bother me at all. Guess it's from the iodine that shell fish have in them, or some dumb thing..... Good luck and be careful!

I can eat tuna (from a can, anyway, never tried fresh), salmon (also from a can), and some of the Gorton's fish fillets (especially like the lemon pepper breaded fillets) otherwise I avoid seafood because I've had allergic reactions to it a few times in the past - like hives all over my body, felt like my throat was closing up allergic! Not sure why the things above don't bother me but I don't venture any further than that!

One time I had some fried rice that had had shrimp in it (there was no shrimp in it when I got to it, so I didn't know it had been shrimp fried rice) and I had a reaction even to that!

We lived in MA for ten years, so we were spoiled by amazing fresh fish and seafood. My husband raised trout for most of his career, so fish have always been part of our life. Our son was married in the Roaring River (trout hatchery) Lodge - and every picture of the wedding includes stuffed, mounted fish.

So I have a love/hate relationship with trout, but will eat any type of fish or seafood.
I love the taste of scallops, but if I have more than a bite or two, they make me sick. Other than that, I will try anything - we live above a spring-fed creek, and my son and grandkids sometimes have a big crawdad boil. They're good too.

I cannot eat seafood, as I am allergic to it. I do eat fish. I like Lake Erie perch and walleye, salmon, tuna, and have tried some other types of fish. I think salmon and the LE perch are my favorites. I fix it at home, and order it when out often. I have concerns about the mercury, etc, but I don't lose sleep over it. Salmon must be wild, not farmed, etc. I have eaten fish from cans, but would rather have fresh or frozen.

Do you eat fish and seafood? What are your favorites? Do you cook it yourself, or eat when dining out? Do you have any concerns over mercury or other chemicals that may be in fish products? Do you eat fish in cans, like salmon, tuna, sardines?
