Update: Voting on these match-ups is now closed.  Lobster defeats Shrimp 58% – 42%.  Crab defeats Scallops 60% – 40%.

After a razor tight Lamb vs. Ground Beef overtime match-up that was decided by a mere two votes, it’s time to move on to a new region – the Seafood region. Today, #1 seed Lobster takes on #5 seed Shrimp, and #6 seed Crab takes on #2 seed Scallops.

Tomorrow, we will have our final Sweet Sixteen match-ups when Bacon takes on Pulled Pork and Prosciutto faces Ribs.

As always, you can base your vote on whatever criteria you think makes something a “top” meat. Be sure to share in the comments which meats you are supporting and why.

    NOOOO! Scallops are CLEARLY superior to crab! They have more natural sweetness, and obviously more texture than some fleshy BOILED meat pulled out of a bone in skinny strips that you have to work for to eat. Sorry crab, I like you too, but this is like choosing one child over another…and I pick scallops.

    This was the hardest one yet. Crab or scallops – there’s just no good choice. I went with crabs only because I grew up in crab heaven. But to never have a scallop again… the horror!

    as far as i know, there are no scallop-cakes.

    alright, full disclosure: i voted crab. however, i do love scallops. i think i voted with “tastes best with butter and garlic” on my mind. that’s pretty much how i think
