Mira Bay Sea Cucumber with Maple Cream Sauce

To appreciate Sea Cucumbers unique qualities, it’s very important to not overcook it, so if you are uncertain, just make the sauce, bring it to a boil, then add the cucumber meat and remove from the heat immediately. Stir the meat into the sauce and the residual heat will be enough to cook the cucumber perfectly.
