Man I used to love muscles, clams and oysters on the half shell, raw or cooked. Till two years ago I ate some raw oysters and got very sick, now whenever I smell cocktail sauce I feel a bit queasy. I have yet to have any bivalves (muscles, clams, oysters)
Worst part was, when I got sick it was the day I had to make a 10 hour drive! Imodium was my best friend that day. What a horrible drive that was.
