The most disgusting food I’ve ever eaten was…
Oysters! Oysters on the half slimy, nasty gritty shell are the most disgustingly grotesque food I have ever eaten and never ever will I eat them again. Fried oysters are fine. Oysters and clams in marinara sauce are great too but there is just something about those uncooked other worldly creatures that make my gag reflex go into overdrive.
I stopped eating a lot of shellfish and other sea critters because of the mercury content and other reasons so I don’t really run into too many oysters – even fried ones. I eat loads of salmon but I only eat wild caught. I might get the farm raised if I know I can trust the companies behind them, like Whole Foods. I’m a huge tilapia fan and could have that everyday. I do miss my shrimp, crabs and lobster at times but I hate raw oysters!
I will however concede, and admit they do have a certain visual appeal to them!
