Egg Mass of Wedge Seahare

Egg mass (lukot) from wedge seahare (Dolabella auricularia). This is normally eaten raw and always a delightful treat. It is high in mineral and amino acids, an ideal food for human consumption.

Lukot is also used like a vegetable component of tinolang isda (clear fish soup). A glassful of it cost PHP 50 at Agdao Market.
