Think forced to eat crocodile in Florida once might have eaten shark. And there was that mussel pie that my sister and were really enjoying as teenagers and asked parents what the black bits were....totally put us off pie for ages...

In Spain with my parents when I was young, found a naice hotel restaurant with a fixed menu. As a between course palate cleansing thing they brought out some pink sorbet in a little silver bowl.

Yummy, thought I.

Except it was thyme sorbet.

I STILL remember the vileness and it was 15 years ago!

Some weird ones...
Beaver - dried and cured, served with a pineapple salsa. Weird and nasty.
Dried fish - like fish-flavoured, thinly sliced doormat. Inedible.
Puffin - supposedly smoked, but effectively a small slab of raw meat. The taste was fine, but I couldn't get past the wobbling and oozing.
Minkie whale - very conflicted about eating it, but it was delicious.

But the weirdest...
Fermented shark - it's buried in sand for 3-6 months to draw out its toxins, and is so incredibly stinky, it's served in a sealed jar. Didn't taste quite as bad as it smelled. Never. Again.

Saucisson de l' anè! DH well, He all He all He always says, "no thanks," to this Ile de Rè delicacy!

Goat, horse and frog's legs are pretty mainstream, non?

I've had live ants. And seal meat.

PiperRose Thu 10-Jul-14 23:50:07

I love snails!

Primafacie Thu 10-Jul-14 23:51:00

Snails are yum. I could have escargots beurre a l'ail right now.
