I rarely eat seafood at a restaurant and can't remember the last time I did. When I do eat fish out or when I buy fish, I have to see the whole fish, yes there are restaurants that allow you to choose whole fish from the case. I, with few exceptions, will not purchase fillets. The exceptions are, I shot it myself or my wife did, I know the person that shot or caught it or I trust the fish monger.

Sorry, not eating low-quality fish like farm-raised Tilapia from China.
We would never buy any seafood from Asia.

My favorite though is shellfish.....lobster, steamers,oysters. We don`t have these very often though.
I assume you mean fresh cod fillets. Do you ever buy bacalao?

People think I'm crazy for not ordering a good steak (and I do eat meat) but I just love seafood.
What, no Dungeness crab or yellow tail?

I have frozen haddock I buy for 4.99lb thaw and bread and put in air fryer and is very good

have tuna fish a few times per month
The lowest price we have found locally was $6.99 each for live. Now they are offering already steamed for $5.99 each. Guess they over ordered last time.

We eat the above a lot each month, each about twice a week.
Yellowfin in olive oil is the only tuna I buy, but it has to be from Spain or Italy. It is the only canned tuna my wife will eat if we can't get fresh tuna for Nicoise salad.

When out of season, where do you get the crawfish tails? We were shopping at our local Restaurant Depot and my wife spotted some tails in the freezer case that had "Breaux Bridge" in large letters on the package. Breaux Bridge, LA is well known for it's crawfish. We were going to buy several packages until my wife turned the package over and found "Product of China" in the fine print.

Do you eat other seafood being close to the "Shore"?

Lodestar forgot to multi quote your post. When you purchase the scallops do you buy "Dry" packed?

Well we love fish, so we try to eat it twice a week and yes, it is pricey so we, unlike you do eat farm raised fish. We also love tuna and even canned salmon. Most often we eat Tuna, love our Salmon, don't care if it is wild or not and love trout,. and like many others here, we always have shrimp in the freezer as well as Cod.

I live next to a heavily Portuguese/Azores Islands place near New Bedford, MA so I have access. Soaking salt cod in water and picking all the bones out is a major time investment. I like cod cakes (fried salt cod/mashed potato) but I usually buy those at a Portuguese deli. The catch is way down from what it used to be but I can still get fresh cod. Canada shut down their Atlantic cod fishery. The United States needs to do the same.


My standard cod/haddock recipe is a bit of olive oil, salt, pepper, tarragon, panko. Bake and then broil to brown the panko. Scrod haddock fillets are 10 minutes. Cod more like 15 because it's thicker.

For me maybe 4-6 times a month. I won't eat anything out of Gulf waters what with the red tide and the toxic algae bloom going on. If I still lived on Long Island I would eat fish a lot more often since I prefer fresh, rather than frozen. Then there's the expense; my favorite fish is Chilean Sea Bass but that is over $17 a pound last time I bought some.

Minimal.

I'm far from a coast, couldn't really get any further, don't like freshwater fish, and frozen seafood isn't that enticing,

Ha, tricky question. What was called a "shore dinner" to me (walleye, beans, and toast) was somewhat amusing because I had that in my alternate universe, which is Ontario lake country. However, I actually DO live near the "Shore", the Jersey one, which, while it has nothing to do with that idiotic TV show, has lots of actual seafood.

Nothing like fresh flounder or bluefish or mackerel.

I don't like fish. I love scallops but they're too expensive. And they're all frozen which makes them weird when you try to cook them anyway. Crab legs, also too expensive, and too messy and too much fuss. I got some on sale awhile back and it was extremely frustrating. Won't try that again. I have never seen real crab meat already de-shelled, only fake. Probably, again, too expensive if I could find it. The only part of the lobster I ever cared for were the claws. Also too expensive.

How much seafood do I eat? ZERO.

Don't keep track but probably at least once a week, more so in summer. Not surprisingly fresh, wild king salmon is my favorite, but it's becoming less available and more costly even here in Alaska.

We stock up with some frozen local salmon, some smoked, for the occasional dark season dinner treat. Also buy some of the frozen salmon burgers at Costco.

I will eat farm-raised fish, just not Talapia. I like fish, but I mainly eat it for the Omega-3.......Tilapia has next to none.
