Here we go. Have fun. Please remember to keep any comments you post on this thread general. It's okay to post things like "everything looks great". It's not okay to post things like " I love Number 2 and everyone should vote for that one". Any posts deemed in appropriate will be removed by the MOD staff.

 

The entries are in no particular order. I placed names in a hat and drew them out. When voting the number listed in the poll corresponds with the entry number show before each dish.

 

The photos are the original photos, formatted as best as possible to keep them all similar sizes but otherwise un-edited.  

 

PRIZES!!!!

 

Winners of this Throwdown will receive a Lavatool Javelin Instant Read Thermometer and a Pacific Northwest care package.

 

Good Luck!

All fine entries, great plates and pictures.
Now this is a tough decision, may take a day or two of drooling on my keyboard to make up my mind.

They all look amazing, but that paella is making my mouth water.  I narrowed to 3, but very tough.

Not a seafood fan but had to vote. Some really good presentations.

I think there should be a way of taste testing before we vote of course then I would be to full and fall to sleep and forget to vote.  :biggrin: 

 

Congratulation to all the makers of the great looking dishes. Making a choice is not easy for sure.

What a great collection of mouth watering presentations!!

I love seafood but don't get to eat it very often ( Miss Linda is definitely not a fan).

Took a while but I'm ready to vote.

All dishes Davey Jones would be proud of! May I graze at that seafood buffet?

 

I don't have a dogfish in the fight this month. I have abstained because... well... um... I have been out catching it! I had a blast at the Halibut opener!

 

Good luck competitors!

Amazing looking entries. The presentation and plating is fantastic. Creativity all the way down to making the "under the Sea" sign in some cases.

I do like the closer photos where you can really see the detail of the food. Going to be a tough vote though, I'd pay for every one of them.

Incredible, you all have talent on the smoker for sure. They look amazing. This is going to be a tough one to vote on. Any one of those could be served here in a fancy New Orleans restaurant and fit right in.

Well after lots of thought and indecision...... I had to get the wife to look and give me her opinion as well, We both came to the same decision, Sure made us hungry. Great job to all involved. Would be nice to award point to all!!!
