I've seen tinned jellyfish and packets of it dried in the oriental sections of supermarkets, and wondered how popular it actually is? Surely it can't be particularly nutritious? I imagine the texture to be ghastly as well. So, has anyone on here actually tried it, and if so, what was it like? I'm curious.
Didn't even know you could eat them. I have to admit I am curious, but yeah, not the most appealing food out there.
Eeeshk, can't imagine actually wanting to eat jellyfish D:
Ugh, I got stung by one once, now I'd rather not go near them in whatever form.
Yeah i've tried the fresh one. It doesn't have a particular taste but the texture is weird- like crunchy jelly.
Needless to say, I won't be eating it again.
Its a very common appetiser in Chinese cuisine, particularly Guangdong cuisine. It only comes one way though, pickled and cut julienne, served with cucumber sliced the same way and a dollop of sesame dip. It can go without the dip and served by itself. As Ayshizzle said, its quite bland, and really only eaten for its textural qualities.....us chinese are just plain bonkers when it comes to food.
my sister once ate them on holiday by accident when she thought they were jelly
I think if I tried to eat a tinned jellyfish I would be projectile vomiting very quickly. I love a lot of seafood, but I draw the line at jellyfish. I've always hated them with a passion, even the small harmless ones.
it was like eating jelly, basically... never again
