It must get mighty stinky at the Stitch house when you cook those chickens with the guts still in them. confused.gif

we do not do that, cook chicken with guts in them, that is gross. all food we cook has no guts or poop in it.

So then chicken must be an instant turn off for you then?

I will agree that things like popcorn shrimp are terrible. What's the point in shrimp if you're going to bury it in thick fry?

I will say that as the husband of a Jew, shrimp is not the thing I wish she ate most.

That would be bacon.

Missing out on pork in general would be terrible for me. Likewise with a lot of other shellfish - crab, oysters, and crawfish in particular.

However, you get the right bird with the right prep and it's eye opening. So I totally agree there's a ton of shrimp I could do without but I'd not write off the entire shrimp experience.

Being a generation older than you, and coming from Canadian farm country, "shrimp" always meant boiled, peeled, and chilled and stuck in cocktail sauce. I could never understand why people felt it was a luxury item and "high class." (Keep in mind a new Oldsmobile was for rich folk where I grew up). Actually...that part is still puzzling...

Agreed on the "chicken" thing, especially in that it's sort of a blank canvas for cooking. In fact, I think I've used that exact analogy (though I may have said white bread instead of chicken). Actually, I think I used it when I had this same discussion with FLMM and our wives. For the record, they were all appalled. laugh.gif

Still, I can say I've had chicken that was fantastic, especially given I love friend chicken, but I can't come up with a time that's happened with shrimp.

The cold-shrimp-and-cocktail-sauce thing transcends time and geography. The large majority of my life until my mid 20s was spent within a few miles of the Florida coast, and people think that shit's high class there, too.

I hate to break it to you, but all meat has to be de-pooped at some point.

no doubt. but its always done before cooking the food as far as what i eat. unless the shrimp is served uncooked when depooping is required.

also, i imagine with most large animals the poop is not like it is in shrimp. its not like im eating a piece of meat that the poop was removed from that very chunk of meat. the poop was in the animal, but elsewhere. with the shrimp, you depoop, and then eat that very thing where the poop just was.

that may not make sense/could be a mental thing, but either way, it still grosses me out. i guess it doesnt really matter because i am not eating it anyways.

but this has been an enlightening conversation about poop, in the animals we eat. /the more you know.

It is customary to clean the shrimp prior to cooking...what sort of tales are your mashguiahs spreading about the goys now?

Oh, and btw? Sausages are encased in the shit tube.

not spreading any tails. i only know about depooping, because in my old job, my employees would buy shrimp, and depoop them one at a time as they ate them. was so gross. maybe thats only in super ghetto crappy seafood places that they cook prior to depooping. they seemed to say that was the norm. then again, they were not the classiest of individuals.

good to know about the sausages though. lol.

I've gone back and fort about loving/hating/being meh about oysters my whole life. Oysters are ironically excellent while drinking/drunk though.

That's revolting. Any self respecting chef cleans the shrimp before cooking them.

The only caveat would be if the shrimp have been purged.

you think they clean crawfish completely? half the time that shit is boiled on the spot whole, but that doesn't stop me from going to town on them.

Raw oysters FTW. I love them so much. I've been eating them pretty much my entire life. There are stories (and I think pictures) from when I was about three years old sitting with a platter of oysters on the half shell at my parents' cookouts and just tearing into them.

Oysters you're 100% slurping the gut content...and now I'm craving some oysters. laugh.gif

Don't oysters make you horny? Perhaps that's why you guys love them so much.

Just some food for thought.
