The cord up the back of the snake was prominent and very tough to cut through. It was recommended to simmer the flesh in water and lemon juice for an hour to debone it but we didn’t have lemons nor an abundance of fuel so we went straight to frying it and deboned it later as we ate it, like you would boney fish.
We were a bit put off by the gooey-ness of it while still raw (it had been in a friends fridge for most of a day), starting to lose interest in eating this thing. But we forged ahead.
It was actually pretty good! Well, nobody HATED it, at least. It wasn’t fabulous but most of us admitted that the idea of eating snake was much worse than the actual taste of it.
