You may have it backwards with regards to taste-buds. Liking things that are commonly regarded as bland doesn't necessarily mean you have a more nuanced palate, since it's equally likely that you just have a plain old boring one. Which is fine.

Salmon are perfectly sustainable, and good organic salmon farms are increasingly abundant (Le Bernardin serves farmed salmon and they're arguably the best seafood restaurant in the world, so hewing to line-caught there is becoming increasingly pretentious).

Anybody who's had to clean swordfish pretty much loses any desire to eat the things, at least in my experience. In New England, so long as you refuse to accept any swordfish that haven't grown to maturity, you could fairly easily avoid clearing them out, however. It's just most people don't, y'know, give a fuck.

Uh... clear them out? What do you mean exactly?? I've had a couple of swordfish steaks and they were really good. Not sure if I want to know what's so disgusting about them in the prep but I'm compelled by morbid curiosity.

My taste buds used to be incredible but all the acidity in your father's cum pretty much burned them all out.

I also demand more explanation, Rich. Swordfish is nice. My father used to grill it a lot.

Tried monkfish liver a month or so ago. Can't say it was great, but it was interesting.

I still do eat a lot of salmon, just less than smaller, more farmable fish. I actually like all fish I've ever tried, though I've developed something of a distaste for Cod; not because it's terrible, but probably because it was a childhood staple food (read: cheap, welfare fish), I ate it more than I would have preferred, and my mother couldn't (and can't) cook for shit. When I'm in the gym more, I readily eat tuna straight out of the can, usually about two per day. I stick with the chunk light to avoid mercury issues, but I know that's still a little too much fish.

On a related note, I also love to eat pussy, which is regularly compared to fish. I never found the taste nor smell particularly comparable, though. I always thought cervical mucous more closely resembled saliva in smell. In fact, I salivate a lot when I run; outside this isn't a problem, but on my treadmill, I have to keep a cup around like a chaw dipper to rid myself of spit so I can breathe properly. This cup invariably smells like vagina by the time I'm done running. Please retain this mental image. Disgusting, isn't it? THEN WHY DO I HAVE A FUCKING BONER?!

As far as swordfish goes, I'm pretty hard to gross out. I really don't give a shit what's in there; I'll assume that they're fine by the time they reach my local deli and/or supermarket. I'm one of those people that don't mind that a certain amount of live rats and rat droppings are legally allowed into vats at food processing plants; as far as I'm concerned, it's not enough of the rat for me to taste, and it's not enough of the rat to make me sick, and I'm not going to be offended (or disgusted) on the principle alone that a molecule of rat made it's way into my dinner.

I don't think I'll ever by chunk light tuna again. I switched back to albacore in water again, and it's so much better. I like it straight out of the can, too. Salmon, too. And I LOVE the bones in there. Good stuff.
Aren't swordfish supposed to be one of the fish that does have high concentrations of mercury?

Yeah, hugely so, but I don't eat swordfish very often because I'm not rich and I don't own my own boat. Swordfish steaks are usually a tad pricey.

As for albacore vs. chunk light, of course albacore tastes better. However, it's much higher in mercury (and other heavy metals) than chunk light, which means you can't eat it as often, and it takes way longer to gobble up a can of albacore than chunk light. Chunk light really is very light; I can devour two cans relatively quickly and still leave room for a few triscuits or crackers. Albacore, like I said, does taste a bit better, but it's a bit of a chore to eat two whole cans of it, especially if you're in a rush.

I suppose it would be harder to eat that way, but I use it for casseroles mostly so the chunks of albacore are more to our liking. I didn't know there was more of a chance of mercury being in it though.

We served swordfish when I worked at a hotel restaurant about 20 years ago, but I don't remember ever tasting it. If I did I wasn't impressed enough to remember. With the economy failing so badly we didn't serve high end stuff like that for too long.

Today I discovered that I no longer enjoy tuna...

Spicy tuna sushi, however, is fucking amazing. Canned tuna... can go suck a fuck.

I have some spicy tuna sushi in the fridge, along with spicy salmon (the raw one, unfortunately; it's good, but I prefer the cooked one) and one other pack. Picked them up Saturday, so I should try to eat them all over the next couple of days.

I'm with you, Ian. I love Tuna but cannot STAND canned tuna. I hate the taste, the smell, the look, the sound, the fury or anything else about it.

Dyl, if you get the albacore in water it's dryer tasting when you drain it, but its chunkier. Slap a little sweet pickle relish and Miracle Whip in it on some bread, and get your carbs and protein. Pickles do not count as a vegetable.

I dusted some boneless skinless chicken breasts with tumeric and garlic powder with parsley last night and had a side of broccoli-cheese rice. Man, that was good. Trying to get some antioxidants and anti-inflammatories into our diet since hubby's having lasting trouble from his back surgery. His innards just aren't working like they used to. Take care of yourselves, guys and girls.

I tried some goat cheese. Surprisingly, it actually tastes pretty good, considering that it smells like Jeffrey Dahmer's basement.

Goat cheese can have a strong smell, but great goat cheese, freshly made, can have the worst smell of all cheeses but taste the greatest.

Yes. I used to find the smell repulsive, which made me want to avoid it. But I've been told that no matter how bad a cheese smells, you just have to forget about the smell and taste it.

That sounds like the opening of a joke for Ethronopian chicken.

Refraining from obvious joke.. I have not, though I hear its good. About a year ago I got lost while driving through LA and found "Little Ethiopia" and it was packed with intriguing restaurants. I would have stopped and ate if I wasn't late for something.
