If I told you that Finding Nemo came out in 2003, would that make you feel really, really old, too?

In 2003, George W. Bush was in office and J.K. Rowling's fifth Harry Potter book—Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix—was released. Arnold Schwarzenegger was elected as governor of California and the first case of SARS was identified. Feels like a long time ago, huh?

Well, you've been waiting now for thirteen years—and the sequel to Finding Nemo is finally here! Finding Dory tells the story of that silly, sing-songy blue tang fish with a memory problem (played by Ellen DeGeneres) on a quest to reunite with her family.

To honor one of the most memorable lines from the original movie—"Fish are friends, not food"—here are 10 non-fish seafood recipes (but some use fish stock!) to keep the sharks' oath. Crustaceans and mollusks are fair game.
