    grilled ain't bad, but let me boil them for you and you'll forget about putting them on a pit.

    As I was salivating at the fact that I have never had a true Louisianan or other Southern seafood bake/boil, I was running down my favorite seafood list. It is long. Aside from dolphin, most of my favorites though, maybe not for meals but for munchies, are shellfish.

    I can't imagine being allergic to shellfish. That would suck ass.

    Mussels, oysters, clams, crawdads, etc, are the greatest foods on earth.

    Hmm, I've eaten a lot, but I just realized I've never had a crawdad.

    The two best places I have had great seafood were;
    Panama City ......wonderful variety of fresh, just off the fishing boat, fish.
    Maui.......exotic location and Hawaiian style fish.

    I guess it's possible.
    the flood waters that reached our pond pushed across a huge area of swamp and marsh before getting to us.
    so somewhere along the way there apparently was a carp population.

    Man, those do look good.

    My own "secret" to delicious shrimp is to cook them in beer, and always with the shell on (or in a pinch, boil the shells and tails first, and then boil the shrimp meat in that liquor). But the celery and onyon will do great things to the shrimpies too, as will shallots. In any event, cook them only until the meat just turns opaque, or even pull them out a little before. Do not ever overcook shrimp.

    I've lived near the Gulf, and honestly unless you load up right from the boat you're better off eating frozen, farm-raised shrimp. They don't stay fresh very long. Tiger shrimp are the tastiest IMO, though obviously that's a matter of individual taste.

    BTW, shrimp are my favorite seafood, but squid (calamari) comes in a pretty close second. If a restaurateur were to sell jambalaya made with squid as well as shrimp, he'd have my business.

    There was a great early Good Eats episode all about buying shrimp and decomposition rates etc. He said the same thing. Also about why shellfish freezes very well.
