Especially during lent. Wisconsin is mostly Catholic and Lutheran; for those that don't know that.

Any sushi grosses me out. But, to be fair, I do have a long standing rule about not eating things that can survive underwater longer than I can.

I see no redeeming value in them at all. I'll stick with poultry, beans and quinoa as my default proteins.

Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos.

Oh we have sushi, just the grocery store kind mostly. Its not really a big thing. My thesis is we see the water that those creatures come out of and we see what is put in that water. We boil/fry the crap out of fish to make sure we don't get sick from it.

I think the only fried seafood I really enjoy would be catfish, oysters, and clams. And I really prefer oysters raw with Tabasco and horseradish.

Of course I have a real low tolerance for fried foods in general thanks to my severe reflux / stomach issues. Grease / oil saturation just makes me want to vomit.

I love sushi of all kinds. In fact, I think I enjoy food based solely on how strange / exotic it is-that's probably why I love things like sardines and sushi.

I'll eat basically anything as far as animals go, the only places I can't get adventurous are things like cheeses. Both the crap processed American and most kinds of bleu cheese make me gag.

I actually bought a big can of clams from the store, dumped them in a bowl, doused them in Tabasco, and went to town. They were an awesome, cheap, fairly not so bad for you lunch with some crackers.

I don't know that I have ever seen raw oysters offered anywhere where I have eaten while in Ohio. Honestly, it has been MANY years since I have had oysters, and I really don't remember prices. My mother and I used to hit the Lee & Ricks on 17-92 for a couple of dozen oysters and then the Frisch's on Lee Rd. for a couple of hot fudge cakes for dessert. There was a time that this was a weekly event.
 
*Forgot to mention that "pinky up" is the proper method when slurping oysters from the half shell.

Oh no, these were steamed. 

I wouldn't eat raw oysters in a non-coastal state. 

Also!!! Lee & Ricks is still around, and still just as awesome as you imagine it. It's on 526, south of Pine Hills (So I dodge gunfire to get there, but I do go every summer. Multiple times.) so I don't know if it's in the original location or not.

Up here, its considered very strange to consume raw ocean creatures such as fish or molluscs.

Growing up ij Florida, I would consider canned oysters somewhat of a blasphemy. Unless they are raw or lightly steamed on a cracker with cocktail sauce, heavily horseradished up, or lemon... you're doing it wrong.

Oddly enough, I got my like of sardines from my grandmother. Like I said, i think it's an older generation thing... Mack probably likes them as well.

Haha, trust me you can't drown out the taste of a sardine.

Yeah the thing is my dad just cracks open a package of sardines and eats them straight and he likes the straight-up taste of them.  


My childhood memory of my grandpa and sardines: 

Being over at my grandparents house, and some sporting event being on. Knowing my grandpa, it was either a Florida Gators football game or an Atlanta Braves baseball game. 

Before the game, he'd go to the kitchen and prep the entire can of sardines. He'd take his snack tray, lay out the appropriate number of Saltine crackers, place a sardine on each one, give each one a sort-of toothpaste stripe of yellow mustard, a douse of Texas Pete, and give everything a healthy sprinkle of black pepper. 

Then he'd grab a Natural Light (Or three) out of the fridge and place himself in the recliner, and scream at the TV every time Wuerffel threw a pick. 

I learned sardines by taking some from his tray.

Agreed. 

I generally dislike eating fish that doesn't taste like anything at all. Tilapia is a big culprit. If I wanted to eat a blank canvas where the flavors were applied, I'd just eat tofu. 

I think hot sauce and yellow mustard compliments the rather potent fish taste of sardines. It's also how my grandpa taught me to eat them, so it's just sort of stuck with me.

I guess I'm wierd, I actually like the taste of fish. It always confuses me when someone tries something like catfish and says it's "too fishy tasting"..... Duh, it's fish moron! I like the fact that is tastes like fish, otherwise I would eat chicken or steak.

You open a can of sardines with normal people in the same room as you?

You're a monster.

BTW I can run through an entire box of those Triscuits in one sitting.

This. 

It doesn't matter how much mustard and hot sauce I put on the fish, it's still very clearly going to taste like sardines.
