If you're determined to go to Europe for your fish fry, I'll vote for an Italian fritto misto.

Another insulting generalization. Over the weekend I had some wonderful fried haddock and chips in a pub in South Carolina. The batter did not mask anything about the fish. In fact, that wonderful steamy haddock flavor was complemented by the batter and a bit of malt vinegar.

Sometimes fried fish is just what I feel like eating and it certainly has nothing to do with not wanting "to eat the mushiness or smell the fish flavor."

Yeah, I made a snarky comment about how you don't know me, when you said, "It's obvious you don't eat raw oysters." Because you said that like you knew I don't eat raw oysters. It would be like me saying, "It's obvious you don't eat baked bread." without knowing you.

I've eaten lots of raw oysters, but, if I was going by your quote, I don't. I thought it was presumptuous to say that. So I responded with an "it's obvious you don't eat" back at you, and got banned for 2 months. Lesson learned. Don't fight comments that are wrong with more comments in that same vein.

If someone says something about you that is wrong, just don't worry about what they say. Easy enough. Guess I just reacted too fast to your comment. Oh well.

When I was a kid, we would go fishing down at St. Marks/ St. George Island, Florida. Catch some whiting, maybe some trout. And we'd always buy a bushel of oysters to shuck when we got home. I've cut my hand before on the oysters before that we shucked and ate. Raw oysters are a briny treat!

And also me and the wife and kids used to gather them on the beach around Puget sound. Nothing like a day of digging clams and eating raw oysters on the sand!
