Going on holiday means one thing, eating lots of yummy new foods. So we thought we’d take a glance at some of the delicious, weird and wonderful delicacies from the ocean world. Delicious destinations...
1. Hawaii, Ahi Poke: Any visitor to Hawaii is strongly advised to treat their taste buds to one of the local poke bars. Whilst there are many different types of poke to try, Ahi poke made up of raw yellowfin tuna is definitely the one to go for and is often served as a salad appetizer.
2. Mexico, Aguachido: This delicious dish consists of fresh shrimps marinated in lemon juice, clams and fresh vegetables. It’s previously been dubbed as one of the 10 meals worth travelling across the world for, lucky for us it’s practically on our doorstep!
3. Vietnam, Ngheu Hap Xa: It has been said that this dish is one taste sensation you cannot go to Vietnam without trying. These plump baby clams are cooked in a pot of lemongrass broth and sweet chili and delivered still steaming at your table.
4. Turkey, Hamsi Tava: You might be more familiar with the term anchovies, and that’s exactly what this delicacy consists of. Found off the north coast of Turkey these anchovies taste more oily and rich than anywhere around. The anchovies are then dipped in cornmeal and fried creating a tasty must-try before you die bite to eat.
1. Japan, Fugu: This lethal dish from the puffer fish is so dangerous that it must be prepared by expert chefs to rid the puffer of its deadly toxins
2. Iceland, Hakarl: Made from shark, this delicacy is prepared by being buried in a sandy hole for 2-3 months and then hung to dry and ferment in a curing chamber for a further 4 months. Don’t let your nostrils get in the way of trying this delicacy which is said to smell like strong cheese!
3. Japan, Shiokara: This consists of the internal organs of marine animals which are then bottled and cooked in a sauce of their own fermented organs. Shiokara has been considered as tasting like cured anchovies – feeling a little tempted?
4. Japan, Tuna eyeball: If the local shop ever runs out of eggs, Tuna eyeballs would make for a great substitute. Apparently this delicacy doesn’t taste too dissimilar to a boiled egg.
These last few delicacies might not have tickled your fancy, so for a safe yet still adventurous alternative The Saucy Fish Co. is always here to offer you a delicious dinner... and you only need to travel to your local supermarket!
