I was looking forward to trying more of them!

Lutefisk sounds like my worst nightmare, second only to surströmming-now that's something I'd vomit over from the smell alone

How about casu marzu?

Casu marzu - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It is basically rotting cheese infested with jumping maggots.

As a professional airplane seat tester for a major investment bank I frequented Tokyo quite often in the 1980's and 1990's (back when they still had money!). On more than one occasion we were served stuff which was still moving. If you wash it down with Johnny Walker Black it doesn't bother.

Even the Norwegians I know won't eat fermented lutefisk.

I believe that the word "eat" is key. A person doesn't exactly "eat" lutefisk, at least in the conventional sense. Often served with copious amounts of butter (like Grandma does at Christmas time) it is actually closer to "gulp."
That's where the religious aspect comes in, as you fervently pray that it will stay down.


Best Regards,
TerryO

No that I would try-it's meant to be heavenly if you're a cheese lover-which I am.

My granfather apparently used to hang a ham until it was infested and then would boil it. All the maggots would rise to the surface of the water-leaving incredibly tender meat.

Yes, the Japanese like it fresh-my father used to do a lot of business there too and has had live monkey brains amongst other "delicasies". According to him the worst he has eaten is Korean kimchee and sea cucumber-the former was like slimey rotten fish guts and the later like chewing a salty piece of rubber

Monkey brains are not Japanese but squid guts are as are "soft" roe better known as fish ji**.

Sounds OK... I guess.

What was done with the Ham after you finished the maggots?
