Red jellyfish are only seasonal, so those who love it will usually have the exact time of the season to take advantage of eating it.

The red jellyfish is a summer food because of its coolness. At first, it sounds like … weird, but anyone who is familiar with it quickly loves this strange taste.
The way to eat red jellyfish is also very special, because holding up is like a piece of sushi with the main ingredient is a certain type of seafood extremely special. First, people have to use perilla leaves (or can add marjoram) outside, then add a piece of baked beans, coconut cut thin pieces, finally put the red jellyfish up and then roll, dip in a bowl of prepared “mam tom”.
The piece of red jellyfish has been soaked with kumquat to give it a nice aroma and less fishy smell, a piece of it is mop, and it looks like jelly and succulent. The jellyfish body is usually softer and more succulent, while the legs are tougher, depending on the preference, each person will choose the best jellyfish for themselves.
Red jellyfish must definitely eat with delicious “mam tom”. “Mam tom” bowl must also be mixed with enough spices to be salty, sweet, sour, spicy, whipped up foam, nothing is equal. The jellyfish is cool, eaten with baked beans, and coconut is mixed with the aroma of perilla, marjoram and there is “mam tom” so it is both strange and attractive.
Not everyone can eat and like red jellyfish. However, this is a very strange summer dish that you should try. Knowing that, eating then “addicted” to this dish?
