Seafood Recipes – Raw Sea Cucumber Guts Marinated in Lime Juice

Seafood Recipes to make you spew!

Here is one to add to the weird foods list to try before you die. Or maybe, it’s one of the meal to try if you want to die! I can’t remember the actual name of this Seafood Recipes concoction, but this bottle contains the innards of a sea cucumber, that’s been stewing inside of a coke bottle with lime juice!

That’s right, this stuff is RAW sea cucumber guts!

A Seafood Recipe with a difference

This bizarre and somewhat stomach churning Seafood Recipe mixture is a unique Samoan delicacy – I definitely haven’t come across anything else like it. Apparently, it looks like, smells like, and probably tastes like salty snot with a dash of citrus. You can buy the stuff at the local fish markets, and I’ve also seen it for sale in recycled coke bottles on the side of the road.

My first mental image was that this stuff looked like a collection of tapeworms preserved in formaldehyde!

Since I’ve tried all sorts of unusual food like Cow’s Nose With Satay Sauce and Tea With Egg, I had been thinking about trying Sea Cucumber guts to see if it would leave me convulsing on the floor as soon as I tried it. However, once the bottle is opened, the whole lot has to be ingested at once, and I wasn’t that hungry! Somehow, I don’t think I’m going to try and recreate this seafood recipe at home!

Like many weird sounding foods, this stuff supposedly tastes terrible, but is apparently great for your general health and well-being. But I need more convincing!

But if you’re ever in the awesome Pacific Island nation of Samoa, check out this stuff, and you never know, you might be tempted to try some yourself!

Ok, you probably won’t find this Seafood Recipe on the Samoa Tourism Authority website!
