Love chicken because of ease of prep and all the different dishes, but a nice thick piece of Ahi on the grill with a brush of olive oil wins out every time.

Fresh caught shark, tuna, or salmon over chicken any day...

Chicken. Never been much for fish. I hate salmon, but I do like the salmon patties I make. What's better, my very picky daughter loves my salmon patties.

Well, I must say, in all honesty that I prefer chicken when it comes to meals.

In terms of friendship, I prefer the fish.

Don't know if we have any members with chicken usernames; I assume we don't. If we do, no offense to any chickens.

definitely chicken.

I used to point blank eat no fish at all, but I'm getting better, still can't handle prawns or lobster. Freaks me out hardcore :)

Both as long as they are fried.

If not, then chicken-lots of ways to prepare that and have it still taste good.

Ooh, I'm a recent convert to fish... my local fish shop does a great "normal" one, with no scales and plenty of salt, beer-battered... yum! And I find fish to be more flavourful than chicken... that said, I once ate fish at a pub meal, and to my horror realised that the underside had scales. Almost threw up, immediately stopped eating. That's just a bit past my ick factor.

But I've eaten chicken for longer, have it more often, and it's a good standard meal. Plus, I LOVE pasta with a hot tomato-base sauce, and chicken goes with that whereas fish doesn't...

So I'm torn.

Fish is a hundred different things, but chicken is just chicken. Boring, unless you dress it up.

Fish. I don't dislike chicken, but it always tastes like chicken. No matter what you do with it or how you season it; it's always the same. Fish is so varied. It's different every time you eat it, even if you're eating the same kind of fish.

I'm cooking salmon patties as we speak. Wish I had some of those jalapeno hushpuppies and cole slaw from the local catfish retaurant to go with it. Dang, why'd I have to think of that? Now I'm craving them.

I like both and can be happy with either -- if prepared well. I also like to cook and find both chicken and fish to be akin to blank pages that are just waiting for something creative to be done with them. :)

They taste like chicken.

Stringy, dry chicken.

With thick, leathery skin.

And a hint of pistachios.

That's a great approach to cooking. I do the same, trying always to elevate not only the taste of food but its presentation as well. They're both relatively easy to work with, yet are even easier to misjudge and overcook. And no amount of seasoning or sauces will ever help to rejuvenate meat that is overdone.

Less is more, in terms of heat and cooking time, when it comes to fowl and fish.

Try oysters instead. And they don't taste anything like chicken.
