In the time that I have spent sailing the Gulf of Gunthak, I have found many types of sea creatures here. I tried cooking them all, being the culinary expert that I am, and have decided to list some recipes for the more flavorful dishes!
Sea Cucumber Soup While the sea cucumber does not have a lot of taste on its own, it has the ability to absorb a lot of flavor! Over an open fire I cooked the Sea Cucumber in a Pot with a Jug of Sauces, and a packet of Spices. The flavor was very nice, and warms the soul.
Abalone Steaks Fishing for Abalone is a hard task. Their shells make it hard to catch them. A net is almost required, but sometimes you can snag one on your line. I used a simple recipe to cook them because they have a flavor that I did not wish to drown out. I cooked them
over a fire with spices and some butter. What a nice taste!
Crispy Gourami Gourami are small but tasty fish. For them I decided to fry them up! Using my trusty non-stick frying pan and some butter to add some flavor, I fried the Gunthak Gourami. It turned out ok;
I still prefer some of the other recipes to this one.
Dried Seaweed Ahh, the Bay Seaweed. What an unflavorful thing it is! I made this recipe on one trip when the fishing was extremely poor and the only thing I could catch was clumps of Seaweed. Using some spices to try to add
some flavor and a smoker I dried it out. Doing this helped to make it last a very long time.
Sea Urchin Stew The sea urchin is very tasty when made into a stew. Take a pot and mix in some cream, vegetables, and the sea urchin. After simmering for a bit the
flavor will mix together and come out as a very delightful stew.
Grilled Eel Grilled eel has to be my favorite recipe of the deep! After the grueling exercise of actually catching a moray eel I set to work to fry it. I decided to drown them in a
Jug of Sauces then cook them over the fire while on Skewers. Oh what a treat!
