Here now and now here or nowhere

The title of this blog comes from a play on words that "now here" is also the same letters as "nowhere" just with a space added in the middle. I am always trying to get better at being in the here and now, and I've always been a bit of a joker so that is why I chose this name.

Eating Lizard

Another exciting thing that happened while in Phan Rang - Thap Cham was my chance to eat a local delicacy, lizard. Slightly hard to find at first, as most locals would deny that they eat it here (much like dog) but eventually I found the area where the restaurants which served lizards was.

flash frying the lizards till they are dead.

after that we skinned the outer layer of the skin off. I say "we" as I was in and helping in the kitchen with it all.

next you slice down the middle and de-gut them.

hello insides..

don't worry, I didn't eat the guts... pretty nasty looking here.

grilling them

covered in a lime, salt and chili rub and eaten with fresh herbs.

survey says.... delicious! actually, they really were very tasty. not sure if this from the chili, salt, lime seasoning or because they indeed tasted quite good. good and meaty.
