I don't like clams, oysters, mussels, octopi, squid, or any other weird sea business.

Scallops are cool. Prawns and shrimp are fine. Crab and lobster are accepted with thanks. But I don't like all the weird shelled stuff or tentacles.

I will eat enough of those to make up for you. Honestly, most seafood is gross as crap in thought, but in taste fantastic. I find it odd you would take umbrage with the first group but not the second, but that's the beautiful thing about tastes. I don't like the texture of squid or octopus (far too rubbery and the the suction parts suck), but I'll eat it. It's all weird, gross seabugs but they all taste delicious.

I hate pork chops - out of every deliciously prepared part of the pig, you give me this?

I agree. I want to like pork chops, just can't.

I like to think I make up for it by devouring more fish than an orca, but all that other stuff just doesn't work for me.

Making one tonight for a holiday party. Are you just always miserable, BiL? Drink some gin and eat some ham!

Dude, you've been on here like two weeks. Chill out with the personal attacks. This thread is for complaining about food/drink we don't like so I was just doing just that. :shrug:

Have you told her you don't like it ?     :)

Oh, yeah, but she serves it at the holiday party because everyone else loves it. Juts too sweet for me. It was completely devoured last night. Didn't go as fast as the beef tenderloin but we had about 50 people so everything went. Except for the vegetables, of course.

Really? What would people bother? Frankly, I have no idea who it might be. I just don't pay attention to that stuff.

I'll eat pretty much anything except olives and ketchup.  I think the latter is liable to get me deported.

Yep, that stuff is gross. Reminds me of aspic, tomato aspic, etc. too, which is also really nasty.

It's always late and thinks it's about it.   Of all the stuff that is left over, who ever sez, "I want the left over canned cranberry sauce?"

My wife's college roomie is married to a guy that runs two scallop boats between North Carolina and Long Island. Once a year we get a few dozen.

problem with scallops is that, unless you are in New England and either personally know who the scalloper is or it is Legal's, odds are pretty good you are getting monkfish cut in a circle.  Bay scallops (the little ones) rock, but ocean scallops usually are just monkfish.

Marinate scallops in balsamic vinegar and sear on a hot surface.

That's not what I'm told in the fish markets here in OBX.  The restaurants may be another story

actually, it is one of those old crabby New Englander tales.  I could not tell you how true it is.  The other thing is that monkfish is pretty darn close in taste and texture, so odds are you and I could not tell. 

As for canned cranberry sauce, I don't hate it but it isn't my choice.  My brother loves it and will not eat any other form of cranberry.  The boy also has a dislike for Old Bay.  :shrug:

I think Mathguy is calling you out for posting "like" instead of "dislike".

I think.  Cause Mathguy sometime works in mysterious ways.

An abomination that needs to be vanquished along with other bad crap from the 60s and 70s like jello salads and the SLA.

Does it qualify for this list if you enjoy the edible bits but hate the work involved (crab)?

Totally.  That's one thing I miss about living on the west coast...dungeness crabs are like lump crabmeat delivery systems.
