Shark?
Whale?
Longpig?
Crocodile?
Penguin?


Come on, give us a clue.




Me, I ate a bit of crocodile (or was it alligator?). It wasnt very nice, very tough. Kangaroo and ostridge are nice.

Had an Ostrich burger a few times, agreed on the niceness of it.

Pre-vegetarianism;

Squid ink (which I still eat, and is actually really nice as a sort of sea-food sauce)
Brain
Sheep's eye balls
Crocodile
Zebra
Kangaroo
Shark
Chocolate coated ants
Bull's testicles
Solid gold
Raw salmon that had been buried underground for two days
Rat
Elephant (although I didn't know at the time, and was upset when I found out)
Goat's head
Camel

Other than the salmon and squid ink, I didn't think much of any of it.

I've never really liked any red meat. Or white meat for that matter. :lol:

The elephant was in Cape Town in South Africa. It was sort of elephant jerky, but I thought it was antelope or something like that. Elephants are my favourite animals, and I was pretty little, and I was p*ssed that I'd eaten an elephant.

I believe the correct term is "biltong" or something like that.

I've had billtong, but only the antelope/deer stuff. I also have to add to the whole "Ostrich burgers being nice" movement. They used to have a farmers market in Birmingham City Centre that sold them every Wednesday. My little treat to me each week.

Horse is nice i had it as a steak, it is lighter and more tender, it was just the idea of eating the horse that got me.

Oysters are HORRIBLE. They might be my least favourite food in the world. I only had one for the first time last summer at Grand Central Station Oyster Bar, because, come on, it's New York, you have to, and I thought they were absolutely horrible. It felt like when you sniff too hard, when you have a cold, and all the shit from your nose goes into your mouth by accident, and you have to swallow it.

I had curried snails once, rubbery but OK, had Basking Shark, that was nice, tastes like fish but... fishier. I also had a lollipop with snake venom in it which was kinda nice.

Oh, and being Scottish, I have had various things covered in batter and deep fried: Creme Eggs, Ripples, even M&Ms - can you hear those arteries clogging?

Swordfish is great to cook. You can make a nice marinade for it with:

the juice from 1 fresh lemon
half a teaspoon of olive oil
a splash of tabasco sauce
fine chopped basil (fresh or dried)

Mix well and brush on the swordfish, each side as you cook it.

Sushi's no longer weird IMO, hell you can get it at Asda now.
Except Asda don't use raw fish do they? Closest is smoked salmon, I think.


Mr DS, you do make me chuckle. You didn't even try your swordfish with marinade. We could just be lying to you to make you feel good. I mean Did had to have it in bread with cheese!!........:p

I've had:
Swordfish
Monkfish
Sea Bass
Veal
Venison (Bambi and his mum were lovely!)
Wildboar
Kangaroo (my most favourite meat ever)
Ostrich
Crocodile (not so great)
and, black pudding-for whatever reason I just can't get my head around eating blood. Such a hypocrite, when I'm very fond of meat.
