Balat Kayo!

Currently enjoying the warm weather here in the Philippines. Next week I will be home in Michigan and so for the last days I am enjoying and having fun with sea foods. Here in my place we call this particular sea food as BALAT. I noticed the two colors of basin and I remember the vendor told us that they may be have the same name but the blue basin that contain the BALAT has the soft texture compare to the red basin. I of course bought the soft ones. For the Filipinos out there what do you call this particular sea food in your province? Do you also have this kind of sea food?

oh yes, i love Balat (or sea cucumber). Balat is usually used in Chinese restaurants--i had a yummy seafood hot pot with sea cucumber last week at Emerald Garden. i haven't seen balat in markets here---buti pa sa inyo madami! gusto ko magluto nito sa bahay.:p

I have no idea what that is. Do you eat it raw, like a salad?

i think we have that in the province, but my mother never served that on our table. a former high school classmate once told me that they eat those...i forgot what she called them and how they were served/prepared. how do you prepare them? :)
glad to know that you enjoyed your vacation, Manang Kim
thanks so much for sharing over at Food Friday!
