Phu Quoc cuisine is a great flavor excursion when it comes to eating seafood. One of must-try dishes is grilled sea urchin. Grilled sea urchin is a favorite dish in Phu Quoc because it can retain the richness of the urchins.
Despite its ugly appearance, sea urchins become a tempting dish thanks to clever chefs. After the thorns of fresh sea urchins have been removed, the sea urchins will be cut in half, washed and drained then topped with grease, spring onion and grilled on hot charcoals at the end. After being cooked, sea urchins are aromatic. You just need to take a spoon of the flesh and eggs inside then enjoy with a mixture of salt, black pepper and lemon juice. The richness of sea urchins mingled with fragrant aroma of roasted peanuts, grease and spring onion provide an incredibly feeling.
While the gourmets love grilled sea urchins with black pepper and salt, Japanese people prefer raw sea urchins served with lime juice and wasabi. The raw sea urchins will be mixed with lime juice and salt and pepper and directly eaten to fulfill the taste of all the ingredients.
Coming to Phu Quoc, you can try grilled sea urchins and other delicious foods right at Dinh Cau night market.
