We focus on Sazae, or turban shell sea snails. Japan is no stranger to shellfish, but consumption of Sazae dates back millennia. Their appearance is distinguished by shells with jagged horns. Along with meat that packs a light sweetness and satisfying crunch, their slightly bitter innards are also favored. Sazae are commonly eaten as sashimi or grilled Tsuboyaki-style. They're rich in protein and vitamins and are a great source of taurine. Dive in to learn more about this peculiar sea snail. (Reporter: Saskia Thoelen)
