I have a confession to make. Not everything in my Tarantulas, Ostriches and Alligators Oh My! post is foreign to me. I grew up seeing BBQ wild hogs hanging from store windows and tried pork/beef tongues and still eating whole fish (including the head). So it doesn't come as a surprise that I find this dish just simply delicious and so satisfying to devour.
