Over the past month or two I've barely touched a liver, seen nary a gizzard, and have not once sliced my knife across a slab of fatback (with the skin still attached). It's just too hot for me to ingest these kinds of organs, but still, I miss the textures. Enter jellyfish.

Dress the jellyfish in chili oil and a bit of soy sauce, Sichuan peppercorns, and a lot of oil made fragrant with browned garlic and scallions.

You can get all of the ingredients to make it including the jellyfish at any well-supplied Chinese grocery store." Eddie Lin of Deep End Dining gives you a recipe for jellyfish salad, which sounds and looks weird but is delicious in a simultaneously sweet and salty, crunchy and slippery kind of way.
