About sardines and other good seafood.

Sherry says, some people’s tastes cannot be explained. By that meaning things like Sardines and Oysters. I thought about this because a few months ago, on impulse, I bought a can of sardines packed in oil.
When we lived in Biloxi (Late 50s) I bought a can, and later opened it and they were yellow. I threw them away, thinking they had spoiled. As some of you know the SMELL can fool you. LOL, Yeah, I learned that sardines are packed also in mustard and tomato sauce. LOL
Well tonite I suggested having sardines with our left overs. Sherry looked at the can and read, ‘Fillet of Sardines?’ Well there you are, I did not know sardines could be filleted either. They were Not too good, I won’t buy fillet of sardine anymore.
Sherry isn’t a fan of oysters, I love ‘em from raw to the stew. At the ‘Oyster Factories’ in Biloxi (1958) every single oyster was opened by hand, I had no idea. I wonder if there is a machine yet to open oysters.
I love fish. I prefer the perch. At home we call them Crappie. In Florida they are called Speckled Perch, ‘Speck’ for short. I was taught to eat my catch or release it. I cooked bass but they are my least preferred fish. Then one day at Grassy Pond, Sherry and my sister Kat came up with a fish stew that was delicious with either bass, catfish or crappie. I would not turn around for the difference in it and oyster stew. We all love it.
My favorite seafood is Maine or Florida lobster. Sherry and I agree on this also, but that feast is not too often unless we are in Maine. We love Nunan’s Lobster Shack in Kennebunk. Last time there they served one lobster for $13 or two for $15. That decision was easy. ;-)
