    NYT: Eat American. Different kinds. Mostly farmed filter feeders, like oysters.

    I'm becoming quite adept at recognizing a NYT RJ thread just by the title.

    Oops, you mean you're hungry for BOTH muscles and mussels. icon_wink.gif

    BTW, if you ever return here, we know a great place where mussels are half-price on Mondays, a big bowl done either scampi, fra diavolo, or marinara.

    Nice! This part of the SF Bay area is a bit lacking in terms of good (healthy) places to eat out. SoFla has me spoiled. icon_lol.gif

    It's mojo, on Federal in Fort Lauderdale midway between Commercial and Oakland Park Blvds. Besides half-price mussel Mondays, it's the only place I'll eat escargot around here. And the rest of their menu is great, from duck to salmon to beef.

    No. Just because I can recognize an article headline doesn't mean I know the content. Though in this case I can assume the 3 Easy Rules for Eating Seafood are:

    1. Never honk, go to its door, introduce yourself to its parents and escort it to your car, opening and closing the car door for it.

    2. Bring flowers.

    3. Get it home before curfew.

    And that reminds me...I REALLY gotta get across the bay to SF this week and check out the restaurants there. Easy Bay leaves much to be desired when it comes to awesome places to eat.

    If you think seafood is "tasteless" and bland, then you haven't tried my broiled blackened salmon. It's so juicy and seasoned I've literally had people request the recipe for their wedding. Well, one time, but everyone loves it.

    (1) purchase 1/2 lb of salmon (fresh water or farmed, former is more expensive but healthier).

    (2) an hour before cooking, place the salmon in a marinade. About a cup of Worcestershire sauce, 2 tablespoons sea salt and 1/2 cup brown sugar. Don't over marinate as the vinegar/salt "cook" the fish by denaturibg the protein. Place in refrigerator.

    (3) line a skillet with aluminum foil. Take the fish out of the marinade. Don't rinse it, but let the marinade drip off. Then slather the salmon with oil (I prefer virgin but any oil works). Place skin side down. Season with Lawry's Seasoned Salt, McCormick "Salmon" seasoning, garlic salt and pepper. Turn the broiler on high, rack 6 inches below the flame. Cook uncovered 9 to 10 minutes. The black comes from the seasoning turning color, not from burning the fish.

    You will die it tastes so good.

    I no longer eat red meat, dairy or poultry, and so seafood has become a staple of my diet, and also the highlight of my diet, which otherwise consists of somewhat boring but mainly healthy vegan foods, such as fruits and vegetables.icon_smile.gif

    You got that right. It's been a while since I've been up there so I figured it had probably changed given the advancement for foodies in so many other areas of the country.

    Haha icon_cool.gif

    And @HottJoe, I'm heavy on the seafood now too. Just go to online calculators and make sure your mercury levels are in a decent threshold. Mercury can vary GREATLY by type of fish (e.g., tuna is sometimes toxic but salmon is relatively safe). And of course on your annual check up get your level tested.
