Namako Salad in Ponzu Sauce
(see most recently 7.199 Mineo & Myeongran Muchim)
Whereas cooked sea cucumber (namako) has a distinctive spongy-jellyish texture, raw sea cucumber is even more distinctive in its uniquely dense-chewy slipperyishness, nothing else like it.
Mostly flavorless, just slightly briny, thus necessitating a strong condiment, like ponzu.
Home for the Holidays, Day 2 (see previously 7.350 Ganjang Gejang).
In Seoul. Winter break. Going back to Manila on the 31st — can hardly wait.
