(happy dance emoji) Let's try a weird and fun food like geoduck? Why not!
These clams are magnificent. They are some of the longest living animals on the plant. And they look like warped, misshapen cocks.
Here, check out this video by a Seattle based chef:
I butterflied the siphon and cut it into the thinnest of possible strips.
Ceelee, Max and I drizzled it with fresh lime juice, a few drops of good olive oil, and a whisper of tamari. WOW it was so lovely. It had a firm crunch, hard - like a crab apple - and fresh-ocean scent with a really mild clam flavor. Firm yet yielding...

I must admit that my relationship with the geoduck goes back to the early 1980s. I've had a thing for the mollusks since I was a kid. My sister got me this amazing stuffed geoduck plush toy. It was hand made and I loved it.It had a a cartoon face, duck beak, blue hat and a body made of tan corduroy. And a real geoduck shell.
My only qualms when it came time to eat a creature that was thoroughly anthropomorphized? It felt very much alive when I dunked it in the poaching liquid.
OK, um, bye
