    But it is seafood that I like the best.:drool:

    Too many favorites to pick just one, but it's difficult to beat a good prime rib. Last night we had shrimp at Red Lobster, also one of my many favorites.

    Also referred to as "Beaufort Stew".

    The local favorite calls for small potatoes, little corn on cobs, shrimp, and sausage pieces all cooked in a big pot of seasonings such as Old Bay.

    Potatoes go in first, shrimp and sausage last as they don't take long to cook.

    PLAICE (Pleuronectes platessa) The Plaice has pronounced red or orange spots on its body and a white underside. The Plaice can be found around most of the british coast line and prefers shell-grit or sandy bottoms and can usually be found near mussel beds. These fish are normally captured casting at long range from the shore. Baits: ragworm, lugworm and will also except Peeler crab in Spring.

    Nothing like some home-made chili, with plenty of jalapeno peppers, and a few cold ones to wash it down. Good for watching football on Sun.

    Aha! it's a FLOUNDER! :) Or at least a fish that's similar.

    I can certainly agree with you. Nothing like a good fish.

    The preparation shown in the lower picture looks delicious.

    That's it exactly !!!!!! A friend of mine had it down south someplace and brought back the recipe. We have cooked it twice and are about due for another. Also, he said down there, they don't put it on a platter, they dump it on the center of the table. We use a platter. :)

    The last Beaufort Stew we cooked was not so great as ther person cooking it (not me) cooked the potatoes too long and they literally turned to mush when trying to plate them.

    Aack.

    My recommendation is to try one of two things...or both.

    1. Use potatoes that are even in size (I like the red "new" potatoes) and pre-boil a couple to get the timing right. Ditto the mini-corn on the cob.

    2. another suggestion is to cook the potatoes separately in a second pot.

    Shrimp takes about two minutes. The sausage...nothing more than smoked sausage...comes already pre-cooked so all you're doing is heating it.

    Our recipe calls for new potatoes. I could not find any the last time we made it so I bought red potatoes and cut them in half. Worked fine. Both times we cooked it it turned out great. I am ready to have it again. My friend does the cooking and he puts the shrimp in last, and you are right, it only takes a few minutes to cook them. My friend and his wife do not have children, but my wife and I have 3 kids and the pot easily feeds the 7 of us with plenty left over.

    I like spicy food, but I don't have a particular favorite.

    The Babes restaurants around here can do a $5 fried chicken dinner that makes one as happy as anything the Mansion on Turtle Creek can deliver for $100.00

    Wow! What a brain burner...
    Favorite...
    Impossible I think, but "a damn good steak" is way way up there...

    Ribs from Kojaks BBQ here in Tampa... (very special and distinctive)
    A premium Sushi feast...
    Tender and abundant steamed clams with butter...
    Argentinean grilled mixed meat feast with chimichurri...

    Top shelf pancakes...

    Big bowl of Spaghetti with meatballs or sausage and grated Parmesan...
    A cheesy, herby, meaty, crusty, golden Lasagne...
    ...and even, KFC...

    These are a few of my favorite things...

    Man, it's almost two in the morning, I don't need to be thinkin' about this stuff!

    Also, I'm gonna have to add "top shelf" ice cream to the list...
    I had this mint ice cream the other day from Ed and Eddies and I was startled by its excellence...
    It was low carb even!

    Edited to add:
    Jeez! I mentioned Ed and Eddies like it was a national thing...
    I was hoping it was, for you guys!
    But I just Googled them and there are only two locations in Tampa it seems...

    Darn! I had their Cookies and Cream a few months ago and I was equally surprised and impressed...

    The only way that could sound worse, is if it were "Low Tide Boil".


    EDIT TO ADD: "Low Country Boil" sounds like a Foxworthy-ism for a genital blemish, IMO. (Close your eyes and imagine him saying "Low Country Boil"...)
