I will just cut and paste it exactly as I wrote it years ago. Enjoy the seafood recipes and cooking tips guys. I hope this makes some ones life a little more simple and or exciting. Thanks
Turning the sea into on ocean of muscle
Like many children growing up I hated sea food. I couldn’t even stand the smell of sea food when my father used to cook it. I even hated tuna fish. The thought of eating something so smelly made me want to vomit. Years passed and as I grew up I started to get used to eating some fish and even grew to love others sea food dishes. However still to this day I am not really what anyone would call “a sea food lover” I love shell fish, and some sea food dishes . Mostly fresh water fish as it tends not to have that strong ocean taste that some sea food dishes like shark, sword fish, and octopus will have. With some sea food dishes I have had to rely on the taste buds of others to perfect my recipes.
It wasn’t until my stay in Italy that I really got serious about expanding my sea food recipes though. I remember taking my wife out to eat in Italy for the first time. Now mind you my wife hates all fish and the only kind of sea food she will eat is shell fish. Both of our thoughts on Italians main diets were about to change that day. We both fully expected to go to the first local restaurant and see hundreds of pasta , pizza and gnocchi recipes like all the Italian restaurants in America. “WOW” my wife says as she looks at the menu. “What the hell is this shit? “ she says. “ its fish honey” I tell her. “well what is that ?” She asks once more. “babe that’s baby squid” I say with frustration. Here let me just make it easy for you. “that’s backed shrimp, that’s fish, that’s fish , that right there is salad with fish, and that is fish soup. I think that’s bread but the rest of the menu is all seafood honey and non of its cooked the way you like”. My wife only likes it fried and fatty.
We walked for hours all over Italy to 5 different restaurants And every menu was the same. Fish, fish, and more fish. Sea food of every kind shape and form. This was not turning out to be the Italy I had in mind. In the end we finely found the type of restaurant we were looking for. My wife had some lovely gnocchi calbrese and I had some pizza. I spent the next 4 years in Italy with all the fish lovers and was forced to cook fish, learn fish, and love fish whether I wanted to or not. Of course I made the best of it and my sea food recipes grew and grew
