What are some strange (to you) foods that you out there have eaten (or tried to eat) from the oceans and rivers of the world. Many foods that are taboo or at least unusual to most of us are considered delicacies in other parts of the world. I have eaten smoked eel and sturgeon, and it was really good. Eel is eaten in many countries, but probably is not common in the U.S. I recently tried some octopus in an asian restaurant. I didn't taste bad, but I simply could not chew it up...finally gave up. They were small and cooked whole, and maybe the piece I cut off wasn't the piece I should have eaten. When growing up, we often ate the roe from bream, and I really like shad roe, wrapped with bacon and broiled, or simply parboiled scrambled into some hen eggs.
