Eating a Sea Urchin


Eating a Sea Urchin

Eating a Sea Urchin is more exciting than you might think! This was certainly a day I’ll never forget, check out the video as we test the South Pacific delicacy of Sea Urchins!

I can honestly say that this camping trip has proved to be more incredible than I could have ever hoped for! I mean, seriously how amazing is it that we would run into some gentle hearted village boys and that they would spend all morning with us collecting sea urchins and then spend all afternoon cooking with us.

They collected and started the fire themselves, ran to the village and brought some yam and taro to cook on the fire as well and by the late afternoon we had an amazing meal with our new found friends!

Although it was by democratic vote that all of us decided we will never really ever have to eat Sea Urchins again, roasted or raw!

They tasted that gross, slimy fishy salty meat. In the end we sent most the urchins home with the village boys so that they could enjoy them with their families. We had collected so many that it was impossible to eat them all while we were together!

What do you think? What is the grossest thing that you’ve ever eaten? Would you eat sea urchins?
