ALL seafood needs to be cooked in some manner-no exceptions -eating it raw just seems like a waste of perfectly good fish, which i frown upon Sad

Preferably boiled, fried or broiled depends on the type of seafood[/u]

i think with boiling he meant shellfish. and isn't poaching fish technically boiling? i have no idea how to poach something, i just know poached salmon is delicious.

no, poaching isn't boiling. very few things that you think are boiled really are. boiling must be over 212 degrees and poaching is only 160-170ish. so it's a much less harsh way to cook. if you boiled fish it would break it up and not taste very good because the flavor would run out and it would get over cooked and rubbery.

and occasionally people do boil shellfish but steaming is much more common and effective.

bam, that's why i did awesome on my test!

Yeah i meant shellfish (Crab, lobster, shrimp- being a cook, i think, yourself i figure you know this though) boiling fish would be a horrible idea- broiling and frying is best for that.

I've never had sushi before, but since in Louisiana we eat all that stuff cooked and it's delicious, I don't really bother trying raw fish (sounds disgusting though, maybe not?)

I've never heard of ceviche though-it could quite possibly be delicous as well-i suppose i try and stick with mostly cooked meals for the most part....I think shrimp coctails are already boiled before being chilled, i like those too though (closest think to sushi i've ever had)

those shrimp are absolutely cooked first and then chilled. but really, now no one (who knows what they're doing) will be boiling much shellfish. it's not good for the proteins in them, they get really touch. steaming is much gentler.

and i would recommend trying at least a little sushi, i think it's fantastic. but i've never been one to shy away from things some people do. i love beef tataki, sashimi, oysters and ceviche and i'll never not eat something because it's raw.

and i'd try sushi before ceviche. ceviche is raw fish (usually including some sort of octopus, shrimp, and mussels) that is marinated with acid (usually lime or lemon juice) so that the acid "cooks" the proteins by coagulating them but no heat is applied.

I suppose i could give them a try sometime

I've had steamed oysters before and those are pretty great, but you haven't lived til you've been to a crawfish boil-the point of the boil is so when you throw in the spices it absorbs into the crawfish(or shrimp or whatever)/vegetables you throw in as well-(ex: red potatoes & corn) otherwise the boil wouldn't do much more than any other way of cooking it. Then you can peel them and eat 'em up

haha, i'll bet that's fun. but i'd have to closely monitor the cooking of the things and stuff because i'm really picky about some stuff and proper cooking is one of those things.

and you should try those things. and raw oysters because they're a million times better.

Have fun with the sushi! Unfortunately for me, the halfway decent sushi in this godforsaken college town is all out of my price range. I have to make do with the indecent sushi the student commons serves. Sad

it was fantasticccccc. it's an expensive place (good sushi costs money!!) but it's cheaper here because they can use local stuff and not have to ship it all over the place. and it's super fresh. mmmmmmmmmm. this chef used to be the chef at nobu la until he wanted his own restaurant up here. i'm sorry you have bad sushi:(. bad sushi hurts my feelings.

Bad sushi hurts my stomach. Sad At least I deliberately didn't buy any sushi with raw fish, because I KNEW that was asking for trouble.

i really don't buy sushi from any place that looks not perfect. it's just going to be disappointing and risky. for something like sushi you really almost want a sushi chef with ocd.

Yeah, that would be ideal. I haven't gotten sick yet from eating the cafeteria sushi, but it's probably just a matter of time. The more I tempt fate...

i'll tempt fate in that i'll try anything and i don't shy away from stuff like sea ragamuffin. but i don't like eating things that don't taste great and are just dirty!

lack of good sushi makes me super sad!!!
