I sometimes see this bottle sold in the market.


The vendor said it is tuyom. Tuyom is the Visayan word for sea urchin.  The vendor said I can saute it in garlic, onion and tomato.

One bottle costs Php 100 and it can produce four servings of sauteed sea urchin.

It was delicious.

This is Day 22 of the 30-day blogging challenge.

  1. So that’s what Tuyom is! XD Hahaha! That dish looks scrumptious.

  2. I have watched a documentaries about children getting sea urchin from the sea. They are so young yet they are conquering the sea. How’s the taste? I haven’t tasted sea urchin though.

  3. I haven’t tried this seafood but I watched the other week at NEWSTV11 the kids collecting sea urchin and sold then at very low price. Nakakaawa sila.
