Eating a Tuna Eyeball

Jesse of Flee Alaksa likes to eat strange things. How strange? How about this: a tuna eyeball!

I was at the grocery store and I got the urge to eat something new. I looked around and I didn't really see much until I found a food that could look back. It was only a hundred yen, which is less than a buck, so I figured I'd give it a whirl. It had a sticker on it that said that it should be cooked, but I didn't really know how to cook it. I tried to find stuff online, but there aren't a lot of English webpages devoted to eating fish eyes, so I just decided to boil it.

Oh, and I just remembered one thing: some years ago here in Brazil, we had a tv show just like "Survivor".
One of the contests was a "goat eyeball eating stravaganza"... the contestant which eats more eyeballs would be the winner.
It looked very "hard", cause they seemed difficult to chew. And when they finally burst the eyeball, some gross black fluid (coagulated blood, i guess) squirt from their mouths.

It was the most disgusting thing I´ve watched on tv (even more than Stephen King's Dreamcatcher)

I imagine it's pretty unappetizing boiled, but I think I saw it pan-seared on a cooking show before. That sounds more palatable. I imagine the meat around the eyes is pretty tender. I'm not sure I'd be up for nomming on the vitreous goop though...
