The oddest thing you've cooked?

What is the most odd thing you've tried to cook, and what were the results? I don't mean Zimmern or Bourdain, just combinations you weren't expecting, or a new product you didn't think you'd like but tried, etc.

Mine was a couple of years ago, a friend returned from a trip to Scotland and threw a Scottish-themed party. It was great fun, and I looked for a recipe, not necessarily "authentic", but preferably from a Scottish chef. I found Scotch marinaded shrimp. I don't even like Scotch, and can take or leave shrimp, but it was a huge hit, even with me. It certainly disappeared at the party (my husband, who loves scotch, insisted on a good brand, I think it may have even been single malt). Whoda thunk?

Don't know how many folks would consider it odd, but Karen made a smoked salmon cheese cake at my request. She isn't into smoked fish but I loved it! I took some to work and asked if anyone wanted some homemade cheese cake. You can imagine the reaction when they discovered the cheese cake was savory and not dessert.

When I commercial fished, I always brought Mom a fish when I got home from a trip. Once I brought her a triggerfish. Now triggerfish is not what you'd call scaly, more like armored. One captain skinned it like a catfish using pliers.

This one was gutted, but with the skin on. She decided to just bake it, skin and all. The skin came off easily and it tasted fantastic.

A bear roast, many years ago. It was frozen and I waited until we had nothing else to eat when I thawed it out and roasted it. It tasted great!

That does sound good...

Hmmm....

I haven't done cheesecake in a while.
