Infrequently, usually 1-2 or times every 3-4 months. I usually do not order shellfish at restaurants, but prefer fish such as salmon, halibut, trout, tuna, etc.

I will eat shellfish if it is served to me.

Pretty infrequently, as I live in the middle of the country and over a thousand miles from any ocean. Most of my shellfish options that are most affordable are frozen, not fresh, and I feel pretty "meh" about them. Frozen seafood is just not that exciting to me, and while I do like it, I don't like it enough to regularly splurge on fresh that's flown in. When I do splurge on fresh seafood, though I generally prefer shellfish to (vertebrate) fish. I don't care for most fish.

I like prawns, but would prefer that they already be peeled. Crab's okay, lobster's okay, scallops are great, octopus and calamari, I could easily do without, but I'll eat it if somebody else orders it. I'll eat oysters, but have never been as impressed with them as the people I've dined with have been, and I don't care for mussels at all. I never really liked clam chowder until I had it in a sourdough bread bowl in San Francisco, and I'm still pretty picky about it. I've never tried crawfish...they were frequently a presence in the creek I used to wade in as a kid, and I just always think of them as pests, versus something to eat. Like a bug.

Or a bloody mary with Clamato. I have to be in the mood for it, but it's awfully good.

At least a couple of times a week. I made crawfish étouffée for supper tonight. We can get fresh shrimp, crabs, & oysters directly from the source, & the local markets have all kinds of shellfish available.It's crawfish season, so mud bugs are EVERYWHERE!

Love lobster, crabmeat, and shrimp but seemed to have developed an allergy to them after I hit 60. Both of my sons have always been allergic to shellfish so I used to only get to eat it when we went out to eat without them-never served it at home. I sure miss it.

That IS a Bloody Caesar. Yummy.

A Caesar or Bloody Caesar is a cocktail created and primarily consumed in Canada. It typically contains vodka, Clamato (a proprietary blend of tomato juice and clam broth), hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce, and is served with ice in a large, celery salt-rimmed glass, typically garnished with a stalk of celery and wedge of lime.

Snails aren't seafood. If I could afford to eat seafood every day, I would eat less meat.

LOL, thanks. Dunno what Caesar has to do with clam juice, but whatever. I've always called it a bloody mary with Clamato; the bartenders seem to understand what I want.
