Medusa salada

Do you know this seafood ? It has a light sea taste, it’s crunchy under the teeth.

Some species of fish and seafood had been over-fished and are threatened by extinction. For some, it’s the contrary :

These are invading the beaches, stinging the surfers… So, in Asia, we eat them ! And it’s really good.

I buy them dried in salt. It’s refrigerated in this weather, but you can keep it a while in a cool room. I put them one hour to soak, changing water twice.

The classic sauce : rice vinegar, sugar, fragrant sesame oil, chili pepper and garlic.

Sliced goya bitter squash and grated daikon radish complete the salad.

I mix it all in the sauce before eating.

Side dish : lettuce rice-paper cones, to dip in the rest of sauce.

That makes a very filling but light dinner, perfect for a day when heat beats records.
