    Ok, I live in MD, and most of you may know that Maryland has the best crabs in all the land. Anywho, my parents want to come down to visit and go to this awesome restaurant that serves all you can eat crabs, shrimp, clams, muscles etc etc for $40.00.

    My question is, how bad is seafood? Not sure if they have much carbs or fat at all. I'm thinking most of the stuff I mentioned above is protein?

    seafood is very healthy, but some shell fish are high in sodium, so if you're watching your sodium intake... probably stay way or minimize shell fish, otherwise, when ever I'm "cuttin'" I go seafood... (usually some kind of white fish-baked or broiled)

    I try to eat fish atleast 3 times per week. It is great for you just watch what it is marinated in or what the dipping sauces are. Some are really loaded iwth butter since everyone seems to think you need butter with fish.

    seafood is extremely healthy as long as you're not dipping it in butter/tartar sauce and it isn't deep fried

    my cousins cousin has a friend who has a cousin, and he read on the interweb that fish will make your insides green.

    wtf ppl, common sense please. everything in moderation and youll be fine. on the seafood list though, shellfish is the least healthy.

    BTW, mercury poisoning comes from a LOT of fish, not a serving.

    well yesteray I had about 6 or 7 crabs, steamed shrimp and steamed clams :yum:

    very little butter and cocktail sauce. Had a couple of fries too though :ugh:

    all in all, not too bad of a meal i don't think :dunno: (mostly protein)

    poached/broiled/gril fish is the way to go.

    blackened halibut soft tacos are my personal favorite :)
