THIS!! COOK AT HOME!


Best farking shrimp I ever ate I made at home.

GAMBAS AL AJILLO

1/2 to 3/4 lb. peeled and deveined shrimp (thawed if frozen)
approx. 1/4 c. olive oil
4-5 cloves garlic, minced
generous splash of white wine
red pepper flakes, salt and pepper to taste
chopped fresh parsley (optional; I didn't have any at the time)

Slowly heat olive oil in skillet. Add red pepper flakes, then shrimp, then garlic, then wine. Cook shrimp until just pink and firm. Salt and pepper to taste. Finish with chopped parsley.

Serve with lots of good crusty bread to mop up the garlicky olive oil, and a glass (or several) of white wine or sherry. (If you prefer sangria, why the hell not?)

/homemade tapas ftw!

Ambivalence: How can someone NOT like seafood. That's like saying you don't like cheese. Even the lactose intolerant love cheese.


I have a friend who is allergic to cheese (it makes the soft tissues of his mouth sore) and yet he eats it
every chance he gets. Such is the power of cheese.

Say what you want about Red Lobster, but their cheese biscuits are damn tasty.

If they want to do a makeover, they should bring back hushpuppies. Red Lobster is the only seafood place I've ever been in that doesn't serve hushpuppies.

I can't handle even the slightest whiff of fishy-tasting. Tuna in a can I can usually do. And I once had some monkfish that was quite delicious. But for the most part, blechhhhhh. I hate even just being inside seafood restaurants because of the smell.


Tuna in a can is OK? Try making tuna salad; slice up some celery and dill pickles for a little crunch and kick. Dijon mustard, too.

That will be my lunch for some of next week!

kroonermanblack: Red Lobster and Olive Garden fall into the same category as Chilis, Applebees, Subway, and several other places for me. I don't hate them, but I don't seek them out, either. They're tolerable for lunch at work when you can get a cheapo meal, or when I'm visiting the parents in small-town Texas and the options are 1-20 Mass chains and we feel like going to the Italian veneer one instead of the other veneer ones. It's not like we're fooled by the amazing quality of the meal. Olive Garden soup salad and breadsticks for like 7 bucks is great. Red Lobster, I've never found much on there I like, but my choice would be 'fish' and 'fish' at RL is 20$ a farking plate and I'm not paying that for what I could go to Sams and buy a bag of for less.

Anyone recommend a good seafood join in Dallas that's reasonably priced? I don't care if it's a dive or what, just good food. It's way far from a port so not sure, but it's Dallas.

The fish shack in Plano is awesome. I highly recommend the fish tacos.

I am that guy. I don't like seafood. I don't like the smell, and I just don't like the taste. I've tried, I really have!

But, then again, if everyone wants it, I'm fine with going there, or used to. They had a really good land lovers menu with a few items on it that I liked. Though, last time I went there, they had ONE item. ONE. And it didn't sound that great. Most good seafood places have a pretty decent selection of non-seafood choices for that guy, or gal who gets dragged along.

Seafood is delicious. Nature's supermarket with a nice sandy sun deck :) I can understand those that can't eat it or don't like the flavor (not asian huh). Yes Red Lobster has shiatty food (minus the cheddar bay biscuits), but the staff and clientele are what drive us to say "never again" each time we get a Darden gift card. I think the absolute worst service campaign had to be the "VIP" thing. LMAO they acted like you were Jay-Z and of course mispronounced the polysyllabic words on their scripts while staring down your wife's shirt. It didn't end there, either. The best was the time they brought me iced tea and there was a shrimp tail in it and the manager tried to pick it out and hand me back the tea. I had to fall back to the old "I know you are joking, no one is that farking stupid." Then there are the guys from whatever sober-living halfway house is less than a block away that come in with their state disability check to drink away and (try to) plan meetings with hookers at the bar their smartphone on speakerphone (that we taxpayers also pay for) and then talk about "porking the waitress in her turdcutter". Me and another patron had to egress this gentleman from the restaurant. Then there are the RAP RING TONES THAT PLAY A FULL MINUTE OF THE SONG! Thanks dude. I know from 20 years of experience in Audio Engineering that having Beats Audio means you are a "producer" using your line in on your laptop pfft. Also SKRIMPS!!! Where the fark do you get a k from??? Those reasons (and also the fact that we updated our cc rewards program gift card) means that we only have to deal with Ypsi trash on the public transportation ;)

I'm sure your friend will appreciate it. I bet he'll like it as much as when he's dragged to sushi where if he's lucky he can get a bowl of rice with some dry chicken "teriyaki" and then when the bill comes for $500 of sushi all his friends say "let's just split it!"

/I'm not bitter
/Go to hell, fish eaters

What kind of cheap assholes do that?


That was a group that was only partly composed of my actual friends, the rest were some jerks I didn't know. I'd had some sake and beer, and booze was about 25% of that particular check, so I sucked it up that time even though I was getting screwed. I've had other sushi-place experiences with people I like, and they didn't even think of asking me to be part of the split. That said, I'd still prefer to just not go to a sushi place, and avoid the issue altogether.

In my town, Red Lobster is one of the few restaurants with any customer service so I don't realy mind going there. The last time I went to Olive Garden, the waiter came back from taking drink orders and told me,"The computer says we don't have your wine in stock." He didn't even bother to ask the bartender.

I ate there two weeks ago. I had the coconut shrimp, shrimp scampi, and crab legs. I left there satiated, and thought it was worth my time. It was "good". At some point in the future, I would willingly go back. For acceptable shellfish it's cheaper than most other places in the area, and I can go there with a friend and play cribbage for a few hours, noming on biscuits and crab. If I was in the mood for exceptional seafood, I would not go to Red Lobster, much in the same way that I don't go to Applebee's for steak.

But please, continue to post that they serve lousy food even though you've never been there. I will continue to point out that Boston sucks, even though I live in Minneapolis. But, at least I've been to Boston before.

insertsnarkyusername: muck4doo: insertsnarkyusername: muck4doo: Do they serve Dungeness Crab yet? I miss that about California.

/Blue crabs suck

Really? I prefer blue crab to dungeness and I live in the Pacific Northwest. Of course I've never had blue crab that wasn't pulled from the Chesapeake bay though. If they come from warmer waters the flavor is likely different.

Blue crabs remind me of the rock crabs we used to throw back in the water when crabbing off of Northern California. They have stringy meat.

I've had that happen when the season was just starting or ending before. I usually only take rock crab for their claws myself. But you are right, I've never had that happen with dungeness. Blue crabs have a more buttery taste to me though if that makes any sense, where do you get yours from?


I must agree with muck. Dungeness are the best crab. I'd take a blue before a snow however.

Usually mine come out of Tillamook Bay, and we cook and eat them within hours. YMMV

If you live more than 30 minutes from the ocean you have no business posting here. Frozen fish is inferior, do you like frozen Beef also. Lobster, crabs, and clams must be cooked while still alive because they deteriorate quickly once dead possibly making you sick. Calling Lobster, crabs, or clams "fresh" is retarded. If they're alive they're fresh except in the case that clams can last a month in the fridge. Lobster will live 3 or 4 days in the fridge. If you didn't grow up around seafood or in a family that fished for a living like I did your opinion is worthless. BTW Red Lobster is the only restaurant I've ever walked out of after the appetizer made me vomit.

Could you possibly be any more of an arrogant judgmental coastie douchebag prick? Here's the deal about those of us who claim to kind of enjoy Red Lobster... most of us don't have the luxury of living right next to the farking ocean, so have to take what we can get and make the best of it. Maybe it is crap to folks like you who can just hop in the family fishing boat and trawl for your own Lobster (or however in the fark you catch them,,, some kind of little trap, I think), but to those of us who DO live 2000 miles from the coast don't have that pleasure. Christ, how would you like it if I started slamming on you coasties about not being able to discern a decent steak even if the cow it came from bit you in the ass? I don't see a lot of cattle ranches in New England, so by your logic you'd better never claim to know a damn thing about beef. Oh and that "family has 50 years of living off the sea" crap is meaningless arrogant BS.

Christ on a crutch, lighten the fark up, Francis.

Chafed Willi: Try to get a proper Monte Cristo anywhere but bennigans. Not happening.


Now I'm just embarrassed for you.

thegod082: I sort of agree with you about the soullessness of these restaurants, but on the other hand, it was his retirement party and therefore it was his choice. He's allowed to like it, and your post makes you sound like an ungrateful asshole.


I was nice to him on that day, and you know, we paid, not him, so I'm not sure how I'm either an asshole or ungrateful for thinking it was a dumb place to go and helping to pay. Am I not allowed to have opinions that are different than others, even if fark is the only place I voice them? That's kind of a hellish existence. I think I'll just be a secret asshole then.

For the record I'm also mad at three individuals who, on separate conference trips, induced a group of us to go to a 'great' restaurant that ended up being (1) a food court, and (2) a chain brewery (and several people didn't drink) and (3) a taco truck, not a good one either. I'm not a snob, there are great places where you can get a meatball sub or a slice of pizza that is farking awesome, and there are places that basically suck ass, why are so many people unable to tell the difference?

laid back w/bud light: If you live more than 30 minutes from the ocean you have no business posting here. Frozen fish is inferior, do you like frozen Beef also. Lobster, crabs, and clams must be cooked while still alive because they deteriorate quickly once dead possibly making you sick. Calling Lobster, crabs, or clams "fresh" is retarded. If they're alive they're fresh except in the case that clams can last a month in the fridge. Lobster will live 3 or 4 days in the fridge. If you didn't grow up around seafood or in a family that fished for a living like I did your opinion is worthless. BTW Red Lobster is the only restaurant I've ever walked out of after the appetizer made me vomit.


Wow, and ITG with a fish fetish.

So you expect me to take advice on seafood from someone living 2 thousand miles from a saltwater fish? GFY, talk to me when your family has 50 years of living off the sea. Michigan is what? a hotbed for icefishing? You send me some walleye fillets, I'll send you some striper fillets


Well I was trying to be nice. I actually grew up a large portion of my teenage and young adult years in Brunswick. Heck even help set up an oyster farm with a friend on Emerald Isle two summers ago and still build little microcomputers for algae food growth for various hatcheries for extra loot. We are here in this shiathole finishing the wife's PhD ya ignorant ass I could give a flying fark if that is good enough for you. Got other things going on.

Why are you such an asshole? Probably because your daddy made you work on a fishing boat and didn't hug you. Maybe you should move away from your parents. People can move like I did and will do a couple of more times. Gives ya a more worldly view ;)
