  • Anyone eat Sea Urchins?

    Been looking around and it looks like alot of folks eat sea urchins. Apprently you either love em or hate em. Just wondering if any folks around here had given them a shot. Any dangers with eating them in AK besides the spines (poisonous meat, ect)?

      I tried but it kept getting stuck in my throat.
      Hike faster. I hear banjo music.

        Pretty salty and soft meat I didn't care for them.

          We used to eat them as kids. If I recall, we would split them open and eat the eggs raw. That was a long time ago, though.

                My wife tried them in a nice restaurant and was told they would taste (or have the texture of) like ice cream. She said they were disgusting.

                    sort of like slime

                    went diving in Fiji and guys on the boat insisted we eat some. cracked the shell and drank the slop, not to my liking for sure! If I remember correctly (20 years ago), the beer I jugged immediately afterwards tasted a lot better.

                      Hmm...not encouraging. I haven't been known to listen very well or learn from others mistakes so I'll be trying it anyway.

                          stuck between teeth

                          They get stuck between my teeth and are too crunchy. Just kidding, they are delicious, fresh off the beach. Nothing compares, but are soft, more sweet than salty.

                            That was my recollection, but that was back in the 70's. I have a tough enough time remembering what I had for dinner last night, let alone 30+ years ago.:cool:
