Lobster is really great with potato salad. You don't need it fresh, the frozen canned stuff is fine and cheaper.

Lobster is also good hot with butter. Then there is lobster sandwiches forget the celery. Creamed lobster over toast, or lobster thermador is great. I even like lobster dipped in vinegar. It also works with steamed clams.

I never understood Mussels with French fries, that seems to be popular in the French parts of Switzerland, in parts of France and in Quebec.

I love oysters on the half shell, and agree it is an acquired taste. Someone once asked me what the consistency and taste is like. I hesitated and replied....have you ever had a really bad cold?

Bee mentioned smoked eels. Because they are oily, they taste really good smoked. I had the small smoked elvers in Denmark and it was a pleasant surprise.
