Have you heard of a Canadian Wild Sea Cucumber? Well, neither have we! Unlike regular sea cucumbers, the Canadian Wild Sea Cucumber is thick and has no thorns. Its yellow ribs give the Canadian Wild Sea Cucumber its essence, and its crisp hair which is best served with soup. Preparing it is a four-day process, but definitely worth the effort. You’ll be blown away by its crunchy taste and how well it goes with the soup.

2. Prawn Candy
