Creatures from the deep

We just finished a platter of fruit de mer - une specialite de la region. I had a vague idea of what it was. The Vol-in-Law however was under the impression that it would be "fish and other seafood in sauces - not slimy intact creatures with chitin and eyes and legs that move when you pick them up.". The ViL was raised vegetarian, and even though he now eats meat - he likes to be separated from the means of production. The platter was absolutely enormous - I took a photo, and I wish I could upload it now. I had to eat a good bit of his share, too - in order not to seem rude or reveal or ordering faux pas - since he wouldn't eat any of the creatures that still had eyes. (Crab, shrimp, European lobster). It was good, but I have to admit - it might have been more palatable if it had been battered and fried.
