LOL. Deja vu all over again. Small aitch remembers what I’ve posted better than me.
I grew up not more than a handful of miles from the sea. I’ve been a sailor most of my life and have logged a lot of ocean miles. I own a beach house. Despite that, I’ve never thought the sea tasted good. Seafood on the other hand, properly seasoned is lovely.
Also one other thing I learned is that the hemoglobin of most shellfish is clear. That oyster or clam liquor we slurp is their body fluids. Wouldn’t seem to be as nearly attractive if their hemoglobin was red like ours. If you ever come across blood clams, you will know what I mean. The first time I saw one, I had to pause for a while before eating. Was great. I also love blood pudding, sausage, boudin.
