No Sea Food

The 1st Mate and I are talking about living aboard in the near future and the only problem I can see for me is I don't like sea food...no joke the only thing fishiy I'll eat is tuna from a can and fish sticks which I know isn't sea food.
I wonder if its going to be possible to do this, Yes the 1st mate loves dinner on the hook and I amagine is what will make her crusing very enjoyable but I'm one of those little guys with a hollow lwg that never seems to get full so I'm wondering how its going to work. This comming season we plan on living aboard as much as possible getting ready for the new life style.

Mario,
There is always SPAM.... Well what is your aversion to fish? Is it looking at the whole fish or if it was in chunks like Tuna would that be palatable? My wife who does about 80% of the cooking on OSPREY substitutes the catch of the day in many of her dishes and I really don't notice. Have your wife try one of Bonnie's favorites a casserole of egg noodles, can of mushroom soup, and peas and carrots, little flour to thicken soup up further and bake this. I don't notice what fish is in it sometimes store bought Chicken of the Sea o fresh caught Mahi Mahi or whatever comes her way.

How could you not like seafood ?

I don't understand.

You mean not even deep fried shrimp ? Or lobster tail ? Or crab legs ?

Do you mean you don't like grilled tuna steaks either ?

Or seafood chowder ?

Take a tip from Jessica Simpson, choose chicken of the sea.

(It's really Chicken)

I won't eat lobster or crabs. They are the Buzzards of the Sea.

When I eat a good steak I don't think it needs A-1 or anything for flavor and sea food has no taste with out tons of butter or hot sauce. I'm willing to try grilled tuna steaks. (How bad can it be drowned in lemon peper )


2gringos your right just the idea there bottom feeders

I'm reading "Sailing the Farm" ken neumeyer and it seems like alot of good Ideas for storing and growing food on board. The 1st mate loves to garden and this is a plus.

I ask this because I'm sure alot of people save money catching their dinners ..less to store And the 1mate and I don't do the resturants often both her and I love to cook.

When I was younger i'm sure I would have just jumped in feet first and learned as I went.

I am not the biggest fan of seafood either. I just make sure that I prepare the fish with a lot of other flavors, garlic, tomatoes and other types of flavorful ingredients.

the only, and I do mean ONLY seafood I order in restaurants any more is conch. Because I know it's local, and it's good.

I don't care much for fish, either. I like to catch them. But I consider them survival food. Anything that doesn't taste good on it's own is at the bottom of my list. Fish needs too much other stuff to hide the taste of the fish.

If you think about it, in general predators do not taste good. Bear, mountain lion, raccoon, wolf, coyote, any predator I can think of. Seagulls. The meat is edible, yes. Tasty on it's own without camo? Nah.

What tastes good? Herbivores. Beef. Chickens. Grain fed pigs. Squirrels. rabbits. Ducks. Quail. conch.

Salt water fish are predators. Not herbivores.
