    You may be able to get them out easier if you crack the shell first.

    Coastal calamity [emoji23]

    Not sure if urchin is considered a shellfish. Uni is good. As is eel and octopus. And in a pinch, sea cucumber. I have had it and don't care too much for it myself. And also there are lots of birds near the sea. And some people love sand fleas. Although to me, they are more bait. I have...

    How do you cope with Mud.

    If it rains here, it will be muddy. I just rinse off in a stream or ocean, if it isn't dangerous to do so at the time. Or even in the rain. I do not want my feet to stay soaked, so I pack sandals. If I am on a trail in sandals, I might pack shoes. I like light, so use trail runners. And I...

    Not sure what that is, but salmon roe (ikura) is delicious!

    I prefer savory to sweet as well. The honey smoked salmon has only a very thin layer of honey rubbed on the non-skin side. Maybe a tablespoon or two at most. And it also has a light rub of spicies. With kiawe (mesquite) smoke, it ends up savory with just a small hint of sweetness. The salt...

    Love my Wetterlings axe. Other than sharpening it, it doesn't get much care. Still lasted for over decade of beating.

    I just got into the habit of salt curing. If you wash it, you can season and cook as you would normally. The salt draws water and fish slime out. The flesh is firmer and more flavorful and less fishy. I cure it even before smoking. Wifee likes honey smoked salmon.

    The sushi chefs always salt cure salmon. Then wash it off thoroughly and then a quick vinegar bath sometimes and a quick freeaze before preparing. You forgot my favorite... Copper River!

    That was from my sushi dinner at a restaurant. The ones I make are much plainer. Slice the fish and slap it on rice. Sometimes I will season the fish and maybe even sear it with a torch. But must times just with shoyu and wasabi. The thing is with salmon, you need to salt cure it first. A...

    I love sushi! Most things out of the ocean, I would have no qualms about eating raw. Fresh water, I would cook, even though people do eat that raw too. I have prepared and eaten stuff from fish to octopus to seaweed, both at home and at camp. And I would like to suggest a field expedient...

    Traditional kit

    Love the kit! What does it weigh though? Looks heavy. But perfect for car camping. I would be too lazy to carry that any distance.

    Good ideas for stuff to make with children :)

    When the kids were very little, I carved wooden knives for them to use with their playdoh. Useful tool for them and they can start to learn to use a knife.

    Good ideas for stuff to make with children :)

    My kids and the kids we have taken camping may be more barbaric than UK kids. We have taken them since age 1. Oldest is now 17. We have made cordage from natural materials, bow drills, trap triggers and even Apache throwing stars (when they were a little older). They love fire, so anything...
