Randy said...

Oh I don't think so.

I wouldn't know how to approach them. They look dangerous.

Oh purée, y viennent d'où?!! ça fait des annes qu'on n'en voit plus! quand j'etais petite , j'allais les pecher avec mon grand-père et on les mangeait tous frais sur le bateau..

Dave said...

A new one for me as I never knew you could eat these and I have never seen them in recipes or menus.

Bergson said...

j'en ai pas mangé depuis 15 ans en Espagne où j'allais les pécher pour l'apéro

Dina said...

You can eat them???

My daughter just had her research published in a journal article called "Micromechanics of Sea Urchin Spines."

VP said...

I used to fish these with bare hands in Antignano, when I was a boy. Never ate one though, but made some very happy people at the beach then...

Lowell said...

Fascinating...look like spiky little balls and I can't imagine eating such things. So what do they taste like, chicken? :-)

EG CameraGirl said...

I have never seen these for sale before (that I remember). I'm another one who'd love to have Michelle try one. :))

Virginia said...

Are these really purple? Don't want to step on these in the sea.

So pretty. Didn't know they would be for sale. Love all the Mushrooms. Time to go into the woods around here to hunt for chanterelles. Yummy.

BTW: Why do you say you will never cross the Columbia again????? MB

I wouldn't know what do with them Ciel, except make a lovely image like this one!

James said...

I've never tasted a sea urchin but I might under the right circumstances.

Loree said...

I feel sorry for them so I never eat them.

Lowell said...

Redfish are excellent...very tasty. Gator, I'm not sure, but would you believe people have told me it tastes like chicken?

Sorry to hear about your Toyota troubles in the PNW. Not fun!

Hope all goes well with you!
