I'm pretty adventurous when it comes to food. But I can't do shirako. I thought shirako was fish guts. Ya know, the intestines or whatever. But no. It's sperm sacs. That's right: male fish sperm sacs. Say it again. Sperm sacs. That you eat.
And here, it's a delicacy. My good friends Siu and Mizuho gobbled up a great big pile of the stuff today at lunch.
I tried, I really did. I took a bite and swallowed. I will not be doing that again.
