Saturday, 2-18-17, what's headed for your belly?

We got our geoduck! We'll have 2 preps, sashimi and fried belly slices with panko. We still have stone crabs left from 2 nights ago so we'll have the rest of those and something else TBD.

I gotta hand it to you Med. I know I'll never be preparing a geoduck.

Spaghetti and meat sauce here.

And I, too, am impressed by your tackling of your geoduck, med. As well as a bit, um, disturbed.

I've heard it's pretty tasty if you can prepare it though.

Oh man, I love geoduck. Is this a good season for them, med?
I've only seen them frozen in our Korean market for most of the year, but I know they advertise when they get them in fresh.

Well, it was alive and still moving, so I'm guessing they are in season. OMG, it was so good! I photo documented so pics to follow. We'll definitely have this again. Probably get 2 next time because we both wanted more, but it will be a treat because they are $33 a pound and we got 1 just under a pound.

This is how we cleaned and cooked it.








Sashimi prep with salt, lime juice, olive oil drizzle and chives.



Fried clam belly with pankos, and wasabi mustard mayo.



The sashimi was just as tender as could be, light clam/briny taste. It started curling at the edges just like the video as I sliced it. The fried clam belly was like fried butter, just melted in your mouth. Light wasabi mayo was just perfect with it.

Yup, I agree 100 % - although Kayelle, we have to say... "Never say never!" I think you two guys must have hidden gills on your back..

My son, etal, came out for late lunch. Ran out and grabbed some salmon to make the Salmon Cakes from Cook's Illustrated.

I make tis all the time - but have to admit first time I read the recipe I felt bewildered. I always assumed you made Salmon Cakes from left over salmon... you didn't buy it just to make te cakes!

I now buy fresh salmon just to make these cakes - they are so good!

Here is the site for them...

Easy Salmon Cakes

I know I could do it Med, and I'd sure love to have the experience of eating it. I bet it was wonderful!

It was a pleasure to grill tonight and be outside after the epic storm of yesterday.

Not to brag, but I love the way I do thighs and and grill basket of marinated veggies.
Good and simple eats.

Killer! I love veggies done in the grill basket. Kayelle grills so often that I had to order replacement heat shields for the BBQ because they burned out!
Also, I had to get a new tank because the old one expired. They are only good for 12 years.
P.S. I always have a full spare tank.
