I don't know whether to be completely grossed out or oddly intrigued.

Has anybody ever tried something like this? Would it even be any good?

  1. It's not very pretty, is it. I think if I felt like eating all those foods at once, I'd just order a nice mariscada in green sauce.

    1. I love turducken, and I remember when it first came out it didn't look or sound too appetizing, but once you eat it, it's wonderful.
      That being said, I'm not a fan of lobster so I would probably not like it, now if some good spicy crawfish were worked in someplace and we got rid of the lobster, I'd probably go for it

      1. Flounder or lobster stuffed with crabmeat is a pretty common dish, so this seems to simply combine the flounder and crabmeat for the stuffing. I'd imagine it is too many flavors for my taste prepared this way, but it could be good.

        No commnet on genuine turducken. The thought grosses me out.

          The thought is only part of it for me... I just can't get past the first syllable ;-)

                its a 4 letter word, not 3...

                I had considered petitioning the national poultry board to replace "turducken" with the less offensive name of:

                gobgob-quackquack-cakcak.

                But then I realized that my solution only shifted the problem from the first to the third phoneme group.

                Allass... What's one to do?

            2. What? I think it's a thing of beauty....

              1. I once had a whole stuffed grouper w/ shrimp, scallops and crab in Florida many years ago that was excellent, possible a early form of seafood turducken

                1. If you think about it and isolate the different flavors of each seafood component, taken individually this dish sounds pretty tasty. One certainly wouldn't eat a large portion.... unless you're the guy who goes for the obscene food challenge, AYCE thing.

                  1. I'll definitely make this when I get out of grad school, get a grant or marry a rich dude.

                    1. Sure as hell beats Spam! What's the problem? Mo' seafood, mo' better.
                      I lobster, then I floundered,

                      1. I like lobster, but that looks like it would ruin it.

                        1. oh, i missed seeing this, and the link only takes you to a current page.

                          dang! i was all ready for some vicarious eatin'.
