The Great Escape

Rediscovering life in Palawan Philippines

Weekly Photo Challenge: CONTAINERS


How much would you pay to eat the gonads of these spikey CONTAINERS?

Luckily for “the Chef” and I these delicacies were courtesy of the Captain of our expedition who took it upon himself to go diving for these Philippine sea urchins just so we could taste them.

“Ahh,” he murmured as he sucked back the filling of a freshly opened crustacean. “Viagra of the sea.”

To see how others interpret the word ‘containers’ visit the Weekly Photo Challenge.

  1. Oh, wow, I didn’t know see urchins can be eaten. Usually swimmers avoid them for their sting if stepped on accidentally. I will heading for the Philippines soon. Can’t wait for all the seafood I missed. It’s food fiesta everyone I go back there.
