After living in Houston for 4 years and getting used to eating fresh fish from the Gulf (from Kemah market), I came to the conclusion that the only fish to eat is fresh. When I moved way from Houston and the fresh fish market of Kemah Texas, everything else sucked.

I can eat fish again, but it needs to be fresh kill for me to like it. There is a big difference in flavor.

Last time down we fished the White river and fried rainbow trout that night. It was the best. Yumm!

Indeed, while transportation has made fresh seafood more readily available to more people, getting it close to the source is best. I particularly like being able to get soft crabs that were in the water earlier that same day.

Sounds like Grandmother was right

I was brought up on "food rules" by my mother and grandmother, I still follow them and never questioned them, have never had food poisoning, either

I love seafood, but ... it’s so easy for it to go bad that I don’t trust it. I only eat Fish that I’ve caught, mainly crappie,bream and striped bass (and we catch trout here in the winter). I love to eat seafood at good restaurants that have access to fresh fish. Like the Black Pelican in Kill Devil Hills, NC where we were earlier this week.

My wife had a Flounder and Shrimp combo, excellent

I had a local dish, Wanchese Seafood Ricotto. It has Shrimp, crab, scallops, and bacon. One of the best meals I’ve ever had.
