Foodie Friday: Jellyfish Salad

Jellyfish Salad: cold, marinated jellyfish appetizer

The jellyfish (look for the white strands) is mixed in with shredded carrots and cucumbers.

Jellyfish is often the centerpiece in a cold appetizer dish. Nestled next to sliced meats, you’ll find long strands of milky white. Despite the similar appearance, jellyfish isn’t noodle-soft. Instead, it has a slippery and chewy texture.

On its own, jellyfish doesn’t have any flavor. It takes on whatever sauce it’s been marinated with; traditionally, these flavors include vinegar, sesame oil, and soy sauce. If you want to try it at home, here’s a recipe for jellyfish salad.

(Not so) Fun Fact: Please be very careful eating these. They’re quite stringy, and I almost choked on some during my own wedding banquet!
