When I see namako, I feel it's end of the year.
This is just came ffrom Japan. It's very dirty. I use salt ansd rub on cutting board many times.
See, it's very cute and nice color.
We normally eat namako as sunomono, vinegar sauce. And we don't eat straight. We cut thin and small. It is very chewy and that's a problem.
But this creature is really good for your body. Don't chew, just swallow.Look at below.
