Has anyone here eaten a sea cucumber? *I did last weekend. *I was diving in Mendocino and my buddy told me that they tasted good. *I thought he was crazy, but he finally convinced me to try it. *It was surprisingly good. *We cut off both ends, gutted the slimey thing and removed the five white muscles from the carcass. *All he did was dredge the muscles in flour and fried it in butter. *The meat expanded from the heat and made a pretty tastey appetizer. *Give it a shot.

Don't know if it's exactly the same thing, but we buy sea cucumbers from Chinese grocery store often. It's supposed to be a healthy food too. Have one in fridge waiting to be cooked tonight...
