i don't like seafood. fish? no. lobster? no. shrimp? no. crab? maybe (fake crab!).
i always lose out when i go to Chinese weddings because there is so much seafood... esp because i am a disgrace to the asian side of my family due to the lack of sea creatures i eat :(
fast forward... Julie & Brian's wedding... abalone & shitake mushrooms are served. i was always under the impression that abalone was a type of mushroom. it's always served with mushrooms and tastes like one. i was sadly mistaken. i have now learned that it is NOT a mushroom.
AN ABALONE IS A GIANT SEA SNAIL!!!
meet the abalone and me... in better times.
