    Fried Okra? Man, October is always getting screwed. First it was pink opals, then it was Chevy Chase, and now this.

    I do like fried okra. And chicken fried steak is not bad at all. But I was kinda hoping the experts would tell be they had mixed up May and June. I mean... it's plausible... right? My sweetie was born in May, and don't even LIKE bbq.

    Never heard of foods attributed to a month, ‘cept maybe January for New Year’s Day.

    But why not?

    I used to work with a fellow that said it was too hot to digest pork barbeque by June. Of course he never did convince me of that.

    They did get July wrong.

    Crawfish season is not as easily defined as other seasons, such as crab or shrimp, because it is not legally regulated. However, that is not to say that there is not the “ideal time” to purchase and eat live crawfish. There are actually three factors that play heavily into when crawfish season happens:

    The Crawfish are readily available.
    They are cheap enough to afford.
    They are big enough to enjoy and be worth the effort.

    In a normal year, these three planets align around the beginning of March and the season ends sometime in June.

    I'm sure there is some great food up/over your way, like salmon smoked over alder leaves. I do pity you about your comments about fried okra though. One of the rare taste treats available to humans.

    ^ Ours are called piss clams or soft clams--" steamers," in polite company. They are not gargantuan and are eaten whole.

    That's very different from the Northwest, where we don't eat the shell.

    Kevin - the equivalent in Puget Sound is called a 'butter clam'. And yes, they are typically steamed in the shell, popped out and eaten whole. Often with melted butter to dip 'em in.

    The geoducks are much larger, and found in the same spots. Just usually deeper. Neither of them run away much. Just kinda sit there.





    THEN.... up and down the Oregon & Washington coastline - there are 'razor clams', which do require
    removing from the shell and cleaning a bit before cooking. I love 'em breaded and fried. These guys dig deep and fast so you have to be quick --

    We have razors here, as well. They are more elongate than what you show. Same deal: they are quick.In fact, they can swim and even jump, after a fashion.

    How are they cooked? How's the flavor. Ours require a quick fry, or the necks turn to rubber bands - like bad calimari. Delicious though.

    Same kind of deal. A quick three minutes in a hot sautee pan with some garlic, oil and shallots; bake em with chopped garlic and lemon juice and a dusting of seasoned bread crumbs just until the bread crumbs toast.

    Like that.

    I love seafood of all sorts, and esp. shellfish. I don't have a bucket list, but I do hope someday to stumble into an opportunity to try the blue crab.

    I should have used a smiley. I like okra, in fact, I like everything on that list. I was a professional Chef for close to twenty years and have a well traveled palate. Think of it as going to a diner party and being served a peanut butter sandwich while all of the other guests are getting steak and seafood. No matter how much you love peanut butter, you're going to feel a bit left out.
