Lato is often eaten raw, as a salad or added to sushi rolls, sashimi, and poke bowls. It can also be used as an ingredient in soups, stews, and curries. Lato is considered a delicacy and is a popular seafood choice for many people. It can be found fresh or dried, and is often harvested using sustainable methods.
