The delicious jellyfish salad

Jellyfish salad is popular seafood and it is especially suitable in the summer. The taste is very delicious by the perfect combination between the crispy jellyfish and the spice that create the unforgettable taste.

In the summer, you will have an opportunity to enjoy the jellyfish salad. This is strange dish that is suitable in the hot season, just delicious and cheap. Jelly fish contains 95% of water.

To catch jellyfish, fishermen usually encircled it with a net and tugged them into the shoreline by using motorboat. Because jellyfish are usually cut into pieces as small as our ears, they are termed as ear jellyfish. The tentacles, entitled tentacle jellyfish, are cut into many small pieces. Ear jellyfish are clear, light blue and juicy while the tentacle jellyfish, more delicious and more expensive than ear one, is milky and like sinew and gristle.

After being cleaned in fresh water, the jellyfish are cut into small pieces, washed in cold boiled water, and then mixed with cooked chicken or thin slices of pork, boiled eggs, chili, unripe mango, ground peanuts and mints. Ear jellyfish salad must be prepared by skillful hands. They are put in a bowl in layers until dry. Then they are covered by ground peanuts, thin slices of plantain, unripe mangoes, chili, mint and savory leaves. Now we have a delicious jellyfish salad.
