    Default Starfish

    I was watching Chopped and one ingredient was star fruit but I thought
    they said starfish so I wondered if there were recipes for starfish.
    Haven't found many, but this eHow article was interesting.

    Would you, or have you, tried making something with starfish?

    Starfish are echinoderms, same phylum as sea urchins and sand dollars.
    If anybody knows how to, or IF, to eat them, I'd ask a Japanese chef.

    Yeah, me neither. It just got me wondering if anyone cooks with it. The
    eHow article talked about it being a nuisance animal and it makes sense
    to try to figure out how to use it. But then, every life form has its
    purpose for something.

    If correctly cooked calamari is not chewy, but very tender.

    Guess I have never had it cooked properly- usually apps at a bar, and
    I have no desire to prep them at home- been there, done that!

    We had to dissect a seastar in hs biology -- nothing inside it looked
    appetizing as I recall, except for one organ reminiscent of scrambled
    eggs.

    I'd go right to the eggs.

    Echinoderms have skeletons made of a lot of small plates. For a sand
    dollar they are fused. For a starfish they remain separate for the
    animal to stay flexible. The skeleton is why peopl eonly eat the eggs
    of sea urchins. A starfish might be okay in a strained broth but to get
    much meat out of it would be a ton of work.
