Sea Urchins - before getting stabbed eat them! Sea urchins are very much present all over the Croatian coast. Known among the locals as “sea hedgehogs” it is considered quite a delicacy in this part of the world. However the animal is also quite famous as something that can spoil your vacation if you step on it or even worse if you sit on it , so let’s learn more about them on todays tour! You can often find sea urchins fairly close to the shore, usually on some big rocks on the seabed. that 's also a good to know as you can only find them if the sea is particularly clean. Like we said, sea urchins are edible, and you can actually eat them raw. Obviously, you won’t bite right into one as eating an apple, so you have to crack it open and then scoop up the edible orange part. And if you have some local white wine lying around, you will have a delicious Dalmatian snack right there . Not to mention that sea urchins are also considered to be a potent aphrodisiac (wink, wink). Andrea will find a nice spot by the sea explain you what there is to know about sea urchins and sacrifice herself by eating them in behalf of virtual voyagers!
