Mock… oysters?!

1 Comment

Vegan Porn points to a story in The Scotsman titled “Now seaweed is the food of love” that discusses a vegetarian mock-animal product most people would never even think of: mock oysters made of seaweed.

The developer (the managing director of a salmon farm) says they taste like the real thing but he “[isn’t] sure if we can match the aphrodisiac qualities…”

“We’ve been sent recipe books and my aunt wrote to me with one of her recipes using dulse [seaweed] from the 1930s which stated it ‘tastes rather like an oyster’.” Though I can honestly say I haven’t had a single craving for an oyster (… ever), it’s still an… interesting… new product.
