I LOVE sushi and sashimi and mussels and all the rest; except raw oysters...never liked those for some reason.  Fried oysters, that's a different story.  But I think you could deep-fry just about anything and people would eat it.

Growing up in Maryland, seafood was always a part of my diet.  Steamed crabs, crabcakes, soft crabs...yummy!!

You simply cannot find good crabcakes here in Texas, so I don't eat those unless I'm back home visiting my folks.

Agreed that I only get seafood at seafood restaurants.  If it's a hole in the wall diner and they have seafood on the menu, I usually avoid it.  Thank God that my numbers are good enough that I don't think I'd have to worry about it anyway, but I can't imagine life without some raw fish and rare steaks.   :P

Actually, contrary to how I may come off in this thread, I do not generally partake of sushi.  However, this is simply because I don't enjoy it, not because of any great fear.  Red meat I always take at medium rare.  And if I want 6 week aged Époisses I will eat it without regret.

I definitely agree with Matty about seafood/fish.  I only purchase such products from a reputable, specialty monger.  It's worth the extra price.

I'm pretty conservative with this subject, but I also don't believe in living in fear and going overboard with it either.  HIV is not a great reason to stop enjoying good food.  As stated, I managed to avoid food poisoning for 42 years, and then caught it even though my cd4 count was in the 1,000's, and from a product one would not imagined getting it from.  I recovered within 48 hours, and I'd hate to imagine what that recovery would be like if I'd had 200 cd4's.

For the first time in my life I got food poisoning the day after I was diagnosed from CORN CHOWDER from California Pizza Kitchen.  I recovered quickly.  That was awful.
