I would not eat:
Anything from a fast food restaurant- my husband daughter and I NEVER eat it.

Any meat products...combination of being foreign and having mother force me to eat tongue, liver and other unimaginables turned me into a vegetarian at a very young age. That and research about the meat industry.

Anything processed with many additives, preservatives, etc. No tv dinners, stay away from most canned foods, as well as junk foods, etc.

There is so much healthy food that is yummy out there I don't get why people eat junk!

Yes it's in uphill Lincoln - well worth going to if you're ever in the area and in the right area for the cathedral etc. (Viela - make sure you book in advance for evening meals though, they sometimes get full very unpredictably.)

I had nice fish and chips once in 19 years in the UK and it was in Dundee ! The fish was tasty , moist and flaky and the chips had been tripled cooked and were nice and crispy on the outside and almost mushy inside.
It's good for you not to like fish and chips!

I hate fish fingers too but unlike you adore fishy fish... Any kind of fish pretty much and seafood too.

I know what you mean here. I tend to take a nice white flakey fish, roll it in egg and then in flour, if you can get rice flour thats even better and then fry it. That way there isn't so much batter and it stays nice and light. I still put some malt vinegar on it if I have it, if not then lemon. I have to have my chips (or frys) very crispy, no limp frys for me.

Now I'm hungry....lol.
One thing I don't like at all?
Limp, mushy and soggy fries (as the pp stated)....YUCK!
Fries just HAVE to be golden and crispy, IMHO.

I never thought about rice flour for fish. Makes sense, it's a crispy flour. I'll being doing this soon. Thanks!

I got the idea from Everyday Italian, she did this on one of her recipes. When I go to Costco, I buy the talapia flllets and cook them up this way. I could eat a plate of them. I can't stand mushy fries or mushy fish.

Guys....ahem, girls......
I highly recommend panko to anyone!
I use to use bread crumbs, until I got the recommendation from a personal chef to give it a shot and try it. (Since I like the golden and crispy, crunchy texture).
It is so much better then bread crumbs, and turns out so well every time.
needless to say....that's all I am using anymore......

MB-I'm with you on panko-once you use them breadcrumbs are so-well, mundane-LOL.

I did eat chocolate covered grasshoppers once but that was in my youth after consuming a few shots of tequila-seemed like a good idea at the time.

Beets-I agree with-smell and taste like dirt
Spaghetti-O's-agree (same with any canned,phony tasting pasta)
Jarred pasta sauce-too sweet
Jellybeans
Licorice
Sushi-no raw fish for me!
Lutefisk
Lima Beans
TV dinners
blood pudding
Head cheese
Scrapple

Love escargot, mussels, steamed clams.
