Kind of wish it was more prevalent down here. Problem is everyone wants Bass or Trout in MO.

Fried catfish was quite popular back in Ohio, so that's how I'm used to eating it. It helped that my hometown had a fresh fish farm at one point.

Pretty much any actual fish I'm fond of...my ex worked in the seafood department at Kroger's (Midwest grocery chain), so we got to try all kinds of interesting things. I also loved going up to Lake erie and getting fresh Perch.

I also love cooked shrimp (not fond of the cocktail shrimp), crab is a special treat for me. Lobsters are too cute to eat... Never could get into calimari. Oh yeah. clams. There was a point in my life where I could have lived on fried clams.

Dammit, this is making me hungry, and I'm not about top go hit Wal-Mart for some excuse for seafood they have.

Fried clams are quite tasty. If you ever find a place that offers them, get them. Not that it matters, clams just rock any way they get served:)

Not necessarily. Depends on what part of MO you're in. Around here I see a LOT of catfish frys going on.

Well, you have to figure I live aout a vlock from Bass Pro National Headquarters. So not catfish for Mr. James:(

Awwwwww poor James....you'll just have to come up here then for some catfish.

I think there's a place up on Red Bridge road called the Catfish Shack. At least it was still there the last time I went through that area.

No eating the Cthulhu spawn? It is wonderful... unless it comes from the cheesecake factory.

I found out, 2/3rds of a huge bowl in, that theier calamari is the whole shabingy - head, brains, eyes and all.

I was torn between finishing it, because I hadn't cared up till I noticed, or running to the restroom to undo my eating.

I've tried eating squid on a few occasions, I just didn't like the taste that much. I had the urge to drown it in ketchup and tartar sauce to get rid of the actual taste.

Chris loves that crap for some reason.

And yeah, I remember going to one of the tapas bars in Spain. They had whole squids stretched out on the steam tables to serve folks. *twitch*

Yeah - I feel if it was living, it is probably okay to eat, but I am rather picky when it comes to parts and all. No genitalia, brains, or other organs, no butts either.

You can breed animals without any of these features, but they tend to get loose and run for office.

Ya know, that explains a hell of a lot.
