SANTA MONICA, Calif. — It is sport among black belt sushi eaters here to see just how daring one’s palate can be. But even among the squid-chomping, roe-eating and uni-nibbling fans, whale is almost unheard of on the plate. It also happens to be illegal.

Sea urchin. It's got spines (that may or may not be poisonous), but the meat is this yellow to brown stuff. I don't think it's illegal to buy/sell it, although there are some concerns about overfishing.

I've been meaning to try it.
