    Sweetbreads aren't bollocks, they're 'fries'. Sweetbreads are the thyroid and pancreas. And they're delicious.

    I've tried black pudding but didn't like it. Haven't tried white though.

    A question - if you eat fish, do you eat the whole lot, or do you leave the skin and icky looking bits?

    As I think I said in another thread ages ago, I'm training myself to eat all the sardines in the can (because they are so good for you, oily fish and all that) but I can't bring myself to eat the spine even though it's really soft and crumbly.

    In a restaurant I never eat the skin or the brown bits of say salmon. I'm the same with chicken, I hate the skin and if I have a chicken wing or drumstick there is hardly any of it that I will actually eat.

    Although the brown meat of turkey is by far the best bit.

    Calamari is pure evil. That's the most recent seafood I've tried and it was absolutely one of the worst things I've ever eaten.

    It's alright. But saying it's the best bit puts you in a class with only my Granny for company.

    FCUTA!

    Calimari cooked badly is pretty bad, cooked well it's soft and delicious. Mmmm. Man, hungry for tapas now.

    Chicken Leg > Chicken breast.

    Question to the seafood haters - does crab bother you?

    More madness! Chicken legs are horrid. Can't stand meat on the bone, unless it's ribs. I'd rather just not eat it.

    And yes, crab is hideous.

    No, I absolutely love crab, and lobster too. But they have the texture of meat.

    I'm not a seafood hater though, just a shellfish hater.

    I'm pretty impressed with your diet though- we had an irish lad here who reached the age of 27 without ever having pasta, rice, pizza or anything that didn't involve meat and two (very overcooked) veg.


    I know a LOT of people like that back home. My mum has recently branched out into pizzas (only frozen mini ones though so they don't really count) but it took her a while to realise that you weren't suppose to serve them with potatoes. I've never been a big fan of plain food and if you'd lived with my mum, you'd also have been searching out alternatives as soon as you were old enough.

    Erm, crab and lobster are shellfish. Take your point though, although prawns for instance are just small sweet lobsters.

    They're not shellfish, they're crustaceans! Aren't they?

    I like prawns but they are a bit plain unless they come in some sort of nice sauce.

    BTW I used to work in a restaurant doing starters and puddings, and could never get used to how they cooked the king prawns. They were kept alive till they were needed and then thrown (still alive) into boiling water. I know it's standard practice but it always made me cringe.

    Aaaah, so it's Oysters, Mussels, Whelks, Scallops, Clams and the like you don't go for?

    You're mad. Clams and Scallops especially.

    Aye. And like I said, I've tried! Although not clams or scallops but given that I don't like other shellfish, chances of me liking those are pretty slim.

    My favourite meals are Jerk Chicken, Fajitas and Chicken Tikka.

    Not all at once, obviously!

    Scallops are slightly different, more meaty than other shellfish. Almost like calimari in a way

    Scallops are firmer meat than mussels and taste of the sea. I'd say they're like a marshmallow in texture, but fishy. Hmmm, that doesn't sound great does it? But they are.

    You sound like me dude! If I ever go out to eat, and chicken isn't on the menu, I get depressed :D

    /high five

    I like steak too, but most places will either under-do it or over-do it for my tastes. Alternatively a lot of places have too much fat on it as well. Hate fat.

    Chicken FTW!

    Let's not get started on how to cook steak.




    ...







    OK, let's. Anything more than medium rare and you're criminally insane.

    Usually we're opposites :D

    I only like mine to be a little bit pink. Problem is if I ask for 'Medium' it tends to be swimming in blood. If I ask for Medium-to-Well it's practically burnt.
