Why isn't Italy famous for seafood instead of grain slop?

It has such a long coastline it may as well be an island. And yet all we know about Italian food is grain slop meant for peasants like pizza and pasta.

    Italian seafood was great when i was there. The american versions just use less of it. Countries like Croatia aren't that famous for seafood either but they had some of the best ones I've ever had other than Norway, Greece, Denmark and Finland.

      Correction, sweden deserves an honorable mention as well for their smoked fish, crayfish and shrimp. Even the tuna i had at some cheap sushi joint was better than anything I ever had in the US.

        We nordics developed a rather big culture around seafood, because it was so plentiful and during the summer we could catch a large excess. Then we would obviously preserve it any way we could. Smoking was possibly the easiest way of preservation. Practically free, as opposed to salt. Much faster than drying. Also, added a nice flavor. So smoked fish was a huge thing in all nordic cultures. Not even that long ago, almost all households had improvised smokers or ways of smoking fish with byproduct smoke from saunas etc. Or, at least the ones near water, which is almost everyone here.

          The smoked mackerel and skagenrora i had in gothenburg from saluhallen was amazing. We have pretty damn good seafood in the pacific northwest but that stuff was amazing. Danish smorrebrod too.

        That's my point. I went to the adriatic sea around Makarska and Split and that was some of the best seafood i ever had. Americans only know fast food slop.

      I'd disagree. But maybe that's because I'm on the coast.

        No. You'd disagree because you want to be contrary even if it goes entirely against reality. I also live on the coast, surrounded by greasy wop degos and these eye-tie fricks just don't eat seafood very much at all. And why would they? They're descended of the sister-fricking hillbillies from the mountains of southern Italy (srsly, one told me that she knows she's "100% Italian" because her parents are cousins). They wouldn't know jack shit about seafood, anyway, the stupid, inbred pricks.

    In europe italians are known for seafood and everything is based on what can be caught in the Adriatic and Tyrrhenian sea, reason why it's hard to emulate the same in other countries and italian food ends up being reduced to a poor copy of "easy to replicate italian dishes" and by easy I mean using trash ingredients like american cheese and tomato sauce with corn syrup to make pizza.

    You are describing American Italian shit, which is cheapest stuff poor immigrants could make palatable. In Europe, Italian restaurants are quite different and seafood is very prevalent.

    if they have so much water, why didn't they invent sushi and wrapping crap in seaweed?

      We do eat various types of seaweed and eat something similar to sashimi and that marinated type of sushi where the fish is soaked in salted citrus juice. We just never got around to wrapping things in seaweed.

    Shellfish and fish benefit from cold water. It makes them leaner and firms their meat. That's why even Italians orefer dried Belgian fish (stokvis/stoccafisso and bakkeljauw/baccalà) over their own Mediterranean products. There are exceptions of course: tuna, anchovy, swordfish, scorpionfish and vongole.

    Because you're stupid? Half the dishes I had were seafood focused when I was in Italy.

    "Italians eat a lot of seafood" is like the first comment everyone makes after actually visiting Italy for the first time.

    You just haven't heard of it because Italian-Americans were poorgays with grain-based diets.

    You kidding? They got all kinds of great seafood that goes great with that grain slop. You can get fresh caught freshly molted soft-shell crabs there.

    You can't export seafood without turning it to slop. See: sushi.

    Right? Like I said in

    >Countries like Croatia aren't that famous for seafood either but they had some of the best ones I've ever had
    lol you're American
    I'm from Italy but we used to go on holiday to Croatia from time to time when I was a kid. Seafood all day. It's super fricking famous for its seafood.

    , I'm from Italy.
    That same woman was also surprised that I'm tall despite being from Italy. I told her that if Northeast Italy were it's own country, it would actually have the tallest average height on earth and she and her family are short because her grandparents were country bumpkins starved during childhood and therefore didn't have the nutrition necessary to grow tall during that time, permanently stunting their height. Once they got to America, they were still too poor to feed their kids properly and the cycle repeated itself for her generation. And now, her daughter is relatively tall for an American girl (using US measures, she's 5ft8; average US woman's height is shy of 5ft4 last I checked, shorter than Italian women, 1m64/5ft4.5) because she had easy access to food.
    I'm tall and everyone in my family is tall because we're from a city. My grandmother was 1m85 (6ft1), ffs.
    And no, this woman whose grandparents are cousins doesn't eat any seafood except supermarket cooked crab legs, shrimp/prawns and that's it. Meanwhile, I'm buying a fricktonne of mussels omw home this evening because they're unbelievable cheap ($2/lb) and the missus and I like seafood and eat it regularly.

    If it isn't famous in America, then it isn't famous

    There are a billion people who know who Evonne Hsu is. I'm pretty sure she's more famous than whatever TikTokers you choose to follow.
