To eat them, I’ve read, one pinches off that pointy top and somehow extracts the soft center, which is supposed to taste sweetly of the sea.
See? I learn something every market. If you want to learn more about these creatures, click on percebe to read a very interesting article about them from the New York Times.

WHAT A MARKET!! I have the same reaction when looking at live lobsters as much as I love them!
I also loved Palma but somehow I missed that market – it looks amazing!

So many odd looking fish! Not sure I could buy to cook but if served at a restaurant I'm sure they would be delicious!!

Fascinating! What a gorgeous market. I'm with you, the markets are always a highlight for me when I travel. You always see something unexpected or learn something new. I think I would have won a staring contest with that Lobster, though!!!
