it's like a type of sea cucumber.

I think you are thinking of hihiwai or hapawai.

Stichopus horrens is the edible sea cucumber. I've mainly found them at night. They showed it on an old episode of Hawaii Goes Fishing on Kauai where they collected, cleaned, and prepared it. Then they ate it.

Alright, I took the time to fly to Kaua'i to learn the recipe from my Grandma. Like everybody mentioned, they will melt from the oil on your hands... so when torching, put white vinegar about 1-1/2 in deep in your bucket. Cleaning is done by slicing the namako's underside end to end and getting rid of all the insides and any lining that stays behind. Cut across as thin as you can (1/8 inch or so). It helps to keep vinegar on the cutting board. Once they are all cut, blanch them in boiling water for 45 sec to a minute and strain. Cut daikon into 1 in blocks and put into blender with water. Puree that until all chunks are gone and strain all the water out. Mix together and add shoyu, white vinegar, sugar and fresh lemon juice and let it sit for at least a couple hours. The consistency should be slightly less viscous than apple sauce. Hope this helps, it was always my favorite thing that my Grandparents would bring over when I was a little bugger!
