Favorite seafood/shellfish?

I was eating with some other 'hounds and we were discussing the diminishing seafood stocks. then we made our wish list of things we would miss most in the absence of seafood and shellfish. I think, pedestrian or not, tuna, in all of its forms, would be most missed by me. followed by oysters and clams.
what seafood items are board favorites?

  1. Shrimp! I love them fixed just abouot any way but fried, my favorite is Basil Shrimp, then Camerones ala Diabla.

    And then tuna in all its different ways.

      Second shrimp. I go through about two pounds per week. I'm always looking for new ways to prepare them, but usually just do a scampi with some feta thrown in. If anyone has any good recipes please do share!

        A recipe for Thai Shrimp Basil has been split out of this thread into a new topic on our Home Cooking board. It can be found here:

      1. do we really have to narrow it down?

        I can't think of a single one I'd cross off the list. 'course though I've never tried barnacles. they must have some purpose outside of keeping boathands busy.
