This is going to sound really daft but...I love seafood,but don't like the way they are killed (or not!) and cooked.
I have never eaten Lobster,know I would love it...But can't.
I saw a live crab killed with a skewer on the telly.
'They don't feel a thing',the chef said...How do they know?
Also.I'm not sure about freezing Lobsters before boiling them...Apparently they 'go to sleep'....
Can't touch oysters and scallops for the same reason.
Surely scallops are live when cut from their shells prior to cooking?

When I was little we used to go to Hastings at Bank Holidays.I would sit on my Dads knee and happily devour winkles,cockles,mussels,whelks...And jellied eels at 2s and 6d a plate.With loads of vinegar...Once I realised what they actually were and where they came from I couldn't eat them again...Still can't to this day.

As a child, my brother used to gut fish in front of me and, because he knew I did not like it, he used to rub his hands over my face and neck. Consequently I don't eat seafood unless it is skinned.boned and wrapped in breadcrumbs or batter.
I like fishcakes - wjhat fish is used in that?

If the scallop or mussel shell is open then it's dead. Unfit for human consumption. The scallops are still swimming prior to their shells being forced open with a sharp knife, the rubbish cut rom the flesh and thrown away (the brown yukky stuff)and the good bit sliced off, rinsed put into a bowl, and cooked in a nice chilli sauce on the barbeque. Yum! Green lipped mussels cut in half, floured and fried in garlic butter are my favourite too.

Bleurgh. Seafood. Unless it's wrapped in batter or a very a expensive fish or King Prawns I don't have a problem with.
I can't stand labour intensive food, if I have to skin it and bone it at the table you can forget it.
I nearly choked to death on a bone in a fish cake at school when I was 8, maybe that's got someting to do with it.

Seafood........mm MM. My absolute favourite, i love it all - anchovies, tuna, mussels, cockles, oysters, prawns, shrimp, jellied eels, crab, lobster, squid, a nice bit of haddock or mackarel you can't beat it!! I would have to say crayfish tails though if I had to choose a favourite. Crayfish eaten straight from the tub or in sandwiches with some fresh rocket and mayonnaise with a dash of lemon juice...scrumptious.
