    Ready to go into the pot with some white wine, garlic, shallots and butter !! (hold the thyme !)

    Or a simple dip of ponzu and cilantro :-D

        Blue Water Cafe had them as a special (appetizer) when I was there a few weeks ago.

            Honestly I can't recall, as we didn't order them. Sorry!
