The difference between meat and fish is if you beat your fish it will die.

except she never even describes how it tastes! the whole piece is just her internal hand wringing about the ethics of eating any seafood at all.

the closest we get to a "taste test" is learning her cats, but not dog, rejected her "vegan tuna" salad and she doesn't tell us the brand or ingredients of the "tuna".

i regret RTFA. if anyone here has personally eaten any "fishless fish" please tell us about it.

I eat the Gardien "fish" on occasion ....tastes like how I remember fish tastes like, though it has been at least a decade since I have eaten any fish.

Yeah, no thanks.  I'm a carnivore, and I like vegetarian food, but but "vegan" "food" sounds stupid and looks gross.  Real seafood is great, and I will always love it.

I had to look it up to be sure. Female cockroaches can reproduce parthenogenetically (word for the day). They don't need a partner. That's about as monogamous as you can get.

Jesus what a rambling nonsensical article.

Somehow I thought that might be the drift.  If people want to be vegans, I don't have any problem with them. However, the obsession with some vegans and vegetarians with "replicating" meats stupid.  I have a vegan cookbook* with over 1000 recipes and not a single one of them looks anything like meat.

The vegan "tuna" salad I make involves chickpeas and nori.  Tastes pretty good to me with a "ocean" flavor from the nori.  No idea how close it is to animal based tuna salad.

I think for some of them, having bad substitute meats is part of the point.  Like they're publicly flagellating themselves to prove their moral rectitude.

I made it a few paragraphs in and got irked by the whining of the people around the author.

Seriously, the damn stuff isn't going to kill you, just try a mouthful and offer some feedback.

Granted, I am an adventurous eater who will largely try anything once...and even if it is awful, I will cleanse my palate and give it one more try for confirmation.

yeah, i've seen it on menus with a chickpea base, which honestly sounds good as long as i wasn't expecting it to be a clone of fish-based tuna salad and was willing to enjoy it in it's own right. but this lady used whatever this is (she couldn't be bothered to say):

and whatever it is (soy? pea protein? unripe jackfruit? who knows!) is obviously vegan, so of course her obligate carnivore house cats weren't interested.....

she never even told us the ingredients or taste of those "vegan skallops" she led with. (she noted you can make them from mushrooms -i'm assuming king oyster- but not if hers actually were). the author is beyond useless.

she's a nutter. google tells me this "animal fact" actually entered pop culture through the show "friends".

the truth about lobster sex:

Lobsters actually mate by a weird system of serial monogamy. It's not exactly a one-night stand, but it's not a lifelong commitment either. Instead, a bunch of females take turns having a fling with the local dominant male that lasts a week or two and, if they're not happy with the amount of genetic material he's provided, then seek a little extra action.

https://www.mentalfloss.com/article/3​2​073/do-lobsters-really-mate-life

so now let us all imagine Megan Mayhew Bergman, award winning environmental author, heavily pregnant and sobbing hysterically into her lobster roll, all because of something she "learned" from lisa kudrow. then chowing down on that soggy roll all the same. and laugh! (or maybe not laugh, you might not be as mean as me where cute idiots are concerned.)

Though I wonder how much of the replication of meat is due to the actual vegan/vegetarian community or opportunistic corporations trying to tap into a new food space.

Vegan food (vegetables) is awesome on its own and the actual vegan/vegetarians I have known never cared for this substitute stuff.

I mean, dogs will eat just about anything (my niece's yellow lab is very fond of rabbit poops!) so that was wonderfully unhelpful of her.

I'm a big fan of certain fake-meats, but seafood isn't exactly among them.

I've had:

- (a.) 7th Day Adventist (id est Worthingtons/Loma-Linda brand) canned "vegetarian skallops" and, just, ew. once was more than enough. at least their salisbury steaks ("swiss stake") are vaguely-edible... but not this, never this. just mushy flavorless mostly-wheat-gluten. not including photo 'cos it's stomach-turning.

- (2.) (creepy-ass) Loving Hut skrimps and fried fish. the "shrimp" looks vaguely-presentable, but wasn't passable, texture bad, flavor absent. the "fish" was good, but only because it was: fried, had a nice big flavorful sheet of nori on the inside, and tbh it's really not that hard to mock up a thing like surimi/kamaboko/naruto.

I know chefs generally like to strip it off since it's so chewy and guests generally are not fans.

me, I cut them off simply so that I can eat them raw, because I love that stuff.

Pale and gelatinous; tastes like seafood. Fark is not my personal erotica site. I'm more concerned about the sustainability of the elusive wild pastrami foraging for horseradish roots in the fields of rye and mustard in northern Italy. Their populace is tracked during the annual migration to the cheese hole burrows in the Swiss alps and since global warming their numbers have been in decline. Won't someone think of the poor pastrami?

are you sure? it seems only an idiot would call roe, literal eggs, "the penis" -if it's not called roe in a restaurant/food setting it's called coral.

if your job was shucking scallops (which it seems he wasn't really doing, hard to tell from one sentence, but it seems like he was simply removing "cut" scallops from a bucket of water for final prep) -it seems more likely he's talking about the black stomach/gut sack or maybe even the frill.

the entire comment is weird though, if he was shucking live scallops daily someone would have probably told him the names of the parts at least once, if they were bought "cut" it's likely the wholesaler would only have included the white muscle circle we all commonly see at the grocery store.

however, it seems most likely the good friend of the woman who wrote an entire "test taste" article without actually tasting one damn thing is an idiot....

That entire article boils down to one thing: Radish the dog eats the vegan seafood.
She makes her dog, a vegetable, eat vegan "seafood". That's my definition of a biatch.


I still do my wild, line caught salmon and halibut but that schitt gets expensive fast. Shrimp are a treat, usually avoided due to the destructive netting, but the one item that is sustainably fished and has virtually no by-catch, local dungeness crab! We eat the hell out of those a few months out of the year.
Canned herring and sardines are always welcome though...

Eh, I could be totally off the mark here, but from doing some googling to try and educate myself on bivalve sexuality, I've read that in hermaphroditic scallops, part of the roe is the female sex organs, a different part is the male sex organs, known as the milt.

Could be complete bollocks for what I actually know, however.

hmm, unsure, and I'm not clicking on that wackadoodle article again! but also maybe what luna1580 said?

but also: roe, huh, TIL!

in 10 years of cleaning hundreds of gallons of scallops swiped from the beaches of Woods Hole, I can't recall ever once seeing roe (would have noticed. and probably eaten it raw when we were shucking the things out on the deck, and rinsing them with the garden hose. and popping more than a few raw into our greedy moufs) - which is really too bad, because now I feel like I missed out :( :( :(

maaan. roe is one of my favoritest of all the things: mentaiko. ikura. tobiko. masago.

tintar: iron de havilland: tintar: also, FTFA lololol, TIL there are people that call that thing on scallops "the penis"??!? seriously?

new to me! in Cape Cod, we always, everyone, called the adductor muscle "the foot"

a clew: it is not a sex organ. you morans.

Well, yeah, but they're talking about the roe, which is generally not served, and is a sex organ, no?


hmm, unsure, and I'm not clicking on that wackadoodle article again! but also maybe what luna1580 said?

but also: roe, huh, TIL!

in 10 years of cleaning hundreds of gallons of scallops swiped from the beaches of Woods Hole, I can't recall ever once seeing roe


Maybe this is a language thing, because luna mentioned something about coral, but what I know as the roe is the orange bit around the muscle that's served as a scallop:

is exactly what I saw when I *tapatapped* it up on the scroobles, earlier. and man, do I ever feel left out! I swear I have never once seen that :( trust me, it would have been inhaled raw straight into my mouth a-pronto.

I was never doubting you - I was/am only haz a sad for having missed out bigly.

For what it's worth, I've only ever eaten scallops once, at The Carron in Stonehaven. Those scallops were served with roe attached, but The Carron's sister chipper also claims to be the site that invented the deep fried Mars bar. So, make of that what you will ;D

iron de havilland: luna1580: are you sure? it seems only an idiot would call roe, literal eggs, "the penis" -if it's not called roe in a restaurant/food setting it's called coral.

Eh, I could be totally off the mark here, but from doing some googling to try and educate myself on bivalve sexuality, I've read that in hermaphroditic scallops, part of the roe is the female sex organs, a different part is the male sex organs, known as the milt.

Could be complete bollocks for what I actually know, however.


ha ha ha, bollocks indeed! lollocks, brilliant!

I d'nno what it is, but... so, the fishies' eggs I'd mentioned - cod, salmon, flying-fish, capelin - yeah, the males of those species do all have milt. except... while I will inhale the female roe, for some reason I've always been squeamish about ever trying the milt.

/should probably just get over it
//not sure where I'd even find that in Philadelphia, tho'
///milt!

now that's one thing I still have never had, and I do mean to rectify at some point. not sure if it's new year's resolution #4, but I'll keep it in mind.
(I did have my chance, decades ago - there's a takeaway in the Village called 'A Salt and Battery' which I must admit is rather clever for a chip shop, but I was never brave enough at the time :( )

one of the places we order poké bowls, for some bizarre reason also has deep fried Oreos, lol! they... weren't great, but they were not too bad either.

rosekolodny: FrancoFile: rosekolodny: I want to kick the author in the shin.

"Once, while pregnant with my second daughter, I ate a lobster roll alone in my car in the outskirts of Kennebunkport, crying between bites, thinking about the monogamy of lobsters."

WHAT.

Eating a lobster has the same moral weight as squashing a cockroach.  Sheesh.

Obviously that's only true if the cockroach is monogamous.


I only eat swinging lobsters

Not going to bother reading TFA after seeing the summaries. But if anybody's interested in actual experiences, the vegan tuna substitute I tried is probably the same stuff as in the article, loma linda "tuno" that I was very excited to see on the store shelf.
I'm not a picky eater. I like sauerkraut, blue cheese, liverwurst, kale, organs, odd meats, etc. I don't like *everything* but I really do enjoy most things people tend to refer to as food.
I mixed the tuno up with a bit of relish and mayo for a simple attempt at tuna salad.
And then couldn't manage a third bite. Huge disappointment, it tasted like vaguely proteiny sadness.

The only enjoyable seafood-less approximations I've had have all been from restaurants, all been deep fried, and all tried more to replicate the experience than the flavor.

I haven't eaten seafood in years because my partner's allergic to most of it and I can't look my aquarium fish in the eye if I've got their relatives on my plate. I would really love to see some good imitation fish products out there, because salmon is f'in delicious and when I order vegetarian sushi the real stuff is always *right there* and super tempting. If anybody's actually had good experiences with commercial products I can buy at the store, please share. Loudly.

luna1580: except she never even describes how it tastes! the whole piece is just her internal hand wringing about the ethics of eating any seafood at all.

the closest we get to a "taste test" is learning her cats, but not dog, rejected her "vegan tuna" salad and she doesn't tell us the brand or ingredients of the "tuna".

i regret RTFA. if anyone here has personally eaten any "fishless fish" please tell us about it.

This stuff is perfectly serviceable with some cream cheese on a good bagel. I'm not allowed to eat it at home because it smells too much like fish and my wife throws a fit, but it's worth a try if you can find it.

Flavour is pretty close to the real deal, but the texture is a bit off. It's similar to the fake bacon that hasn't been cooked enough, kind of limp and lifeless. Given the choice I'd rather just have a plain cream cheese bagel, but if I'm really jonesing the fake lox hits the spot. It helps make being a vegetarian less painful.

oh!!! thank you for reminding me. one day last year at Dollar Tree, I was surprised to see flatpacks of Loma Linda sesame ginger "fishless tuna" - and... *thank-glob* they only had 6, or I might have bought more.

the protein bits are... well they resemble cheap/bad catfood? the sauce itself was simply awful. struggled with the first packet on some fresh hot rice. months later, tried a second packet by rinsing off all the sauce and making a standart tuna salad with (real) mayo and diced onyon. and still... newp. 'ndso, there remain 4 packets lurking en cucina, and I wouldn't even think to ever try inflicting them auf die Katzen, much less myself.

wish I had any kind of good recommendation for you, but, sorries :(
the only halfway-decent things I ever buy en supermarche is: morningstar fake-mcribs, Quorn, morningstar maple breakfast snausage patties, ALDI's own-brand hotdogs and eye-talian snausages. but no see-foods :(

so if you see this, super-run-away!!!

//that reason is: badness
