Can we talk about something for a moment?
I’m not a fan of fish. I like to look at most of them when they are alive, and in high school I DID want to work at Sea World, but seriously…chills.
I will never understand how my husband can order fried calamari. It comes to the table with it’s body shape still in one piece, legs and all!! Like, hello little octopus, let me dip you in nasty marinara and chew your tentacles right up. Oh how incredibly delicious, don’t you just love tentacles!!??
Don’t ever do that again husband…never. Nothing good will ever come your way following a dinner like that.
But alas, I’ve given salmon a few chances, and although I admit it’s still hard for me to swallow at times, the more I dress it up the more I can handle it.
Unless the butcher gives you the salmon that has the black shiny scaley skin still attached, basically reminding me that it’s a fish.
Don’t ever do that again butcher. Never.

Honestly, I ate the whole salad. The dressing soaked right into the cooked salmon, taking any sort of ‘fish taste’ away that it contained! My husband also ate the WHOLE dinner, which is like, “Can I get a hallelujah?!” He is NOT a fan of salad, or greens, or anything that wasn’t made from a red headed clown wearing too much lipstick. But I figure he’s ordered more than my liking of fried octopus, so he can eat a salad or two. And PLUS…He ended up loving it.
But this doesn’t mean I will like fried calamari if I were to try it ok…
I don’t do tentacles. Ever.
