7 Really Weird Foods from the Sea ...


I’ll try most things when it comes to food. I have a very wide range of tastes although I actually can’t stand Broccoli. I thought I was being very avant garde when I first had chicken’s feet and baked eel back in the early 90s and when I tried fish head curry in Sri Lanka but it seems that there’s a contest among the world’s chef to find interesting and new foods to introduce us to. There are however certain traditional dishes that have featured in some diets for thousands of years and to be honest I don’t think you’ll ever get me to eat them. I’ve also noticed that many of them are fish so this list concentrates on fruits de mar and I’ll cover non-fishy things another time. BTW have you noticed how when people try something new they invariably say it tastes like chicken?

1. Death by Fish

I always knew the Japanese were a slightly bonkers race. Why would a national delicacy be a deadly poisonous fish? Apparently 300 odd people die a year from eating Fugu (blowfish) and that’s even with it having to be prepared by licensed chefs. Nutso.
