Do you like seafood?

I tried frutti di mare on a few occasions... I remember my trip to Bordeaux where I was treated to seafood...  I tried a few things then... 

Let's take a look at a few nice words...
  • mussels (małże)
  • oysters (ostrygi)
  • scallops (skalopy)
  • prawns (krewetki)
Have you ever tried seafood? Do you like any of these things in particular?

    1. Shrimps vs prawns... A good questions. From the culinary point of view there is no difference between the two... Looking at the two creatures biologically, we could say that shrimp (Crangon) is translated as krewetka while prawn (Palaemon serratus) should be translated as ślimoraczek pilasty. Both, however, are known as 'krewetka'. Yet from a practical point of view it's good to know that shrimps are usually small and prawns are big. Besides, they say that shrimps are raised in salt water, and prawns in fresh water...
