Oysters are one of the most delicious foods around.  Would eat them constantly if they weren't so friggin expensive.

Oysters, and some clams....I'm somewhat grateful that I can't eat any of those things without having a gout attack.  The only time I ever ate an oyster (one!)...it was broiled in the shell, and totally covered with seasoned breadcrumbs.  Boring!

The only really weird-looking food that I adore is artichoke, but I was carefully taught how to eat them without getting the hairy stuff caught in my mouth.

Did you ever see the old movie, "Mondo Cane' " ?  Whole scenes of people eating insect tacos and stuff.  Gaaaahhhh!  I think even a lobster, whole, on a platter is ugly.  Looks like a bug.  (I still shriek when I see any kind of spider near me...harmless or not.)

Felaine, you mention "desperation food."  Every time I look at an oyster, all I can think is that the very first human to eat one of those things must have been on the verge of death by starvation.

It has always amused me that so many cultures have turned "desperation food" into ethnic delicacies.  Birds' Nest and Shark Fin soups?  Eww.

Sounds good to me Pat.

Snails are fairly tasteless without the garlic & butter, or whatever else is added. We used to eat them occasionally until garlic started hating me. They need to be broiling hot to be good though.

I guess no one would like this recipe, other than me.

Comment by Michael Penn on December 20, 2014 at 12:08pm

Yes, snails. Years ago I heard words like "S car, go." In my childhood mind I thought of a special car in science fiction stories. Only later did I learn it was snails. Not just snails, but eating snails.

Yuck!

One invasive species I will NEVER eat is snails.  They were imported by a French vintner because he was homesick for them.  Ugh. 

D'ruther eat anchovies, and all they are good for is fishbait.....IMO.

Comment by Daniel W on December 20, 2014 at 9:56am

here - you can eat to help the environment, focusing in invasive species!  Wild boar, and Asian carp come to mind.  I've read that you can eat Kudzu too.
