Craving Seafood

Seafood has been one of my all-time favourite food since I first tried it when I was a little girl. I remember my friends always thought I had eclectic taste as a teen and cringed when I ordered escargots or calamari in a restaurant. I told them they didn’t know what they were missing. And really, they were missing out because seafood is AMAZINGLY YUMMY!

It’s hard to even choose just one favourite because I have quite a few. Lobster (with garlic butter), Calamari, Escargots in Mushroom Caps, Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail, Crab and I could go on! We live close to the ocean and it’s great that we can buy fresh fish and cook it the same day. I remember when we lived in Alberta and were far from the sea and I longed to go back to the East Coast and my beloved Lobster sandwichs on every menu in every restaurant.

I am learning new things every day though and recently discovered that you can buy seafood online. For example, I never knew that I could buy oysters online.  This is great if you don’t have anything in your area and you want a diverse selection. Plus, it’s shipped fast and fresh right to your door to enjoy the next day. You can’t beat that! Take for example, Pike Place Fish– they bring the market to you as their motto says.

Do  you like seafood? If so, what’s your favourite? Where do you buy it?
