Geoduck - What about them?

So I'm watching Iron Chef America and I have to wonder, who ever decided geoduck was edible and I'm wondering if anyone here has ever used it.

You're right, they sure don't look edible! They are commonly used in clam chowder and really very tasty!

Okay ~ makes sense. I just thought I might have done something wrong.

No, you didn't do anything wrong, but a one word title doesn't really tell the whole story. Sometimes a title needs to be reworded or embellished to get the response you are looking for. That's one of the things admins and mods take care of.

We are watching IC too. SO freaked when she saw the geoduck! Had no idea they existed and was NOT interested in trying it.

I never have as I am allergic to clams.

I would definitely want to try it and then be told what I ate. If I knew I was eating it, I just couldn't do it. I love clam chowder, all kinds I've tasted so far, so I'd probably like it but if I saw it first, it would ruin the experience.

Try to catch Anthony Bordain's "No Reservations" episode - "Pacific Northwest". There's a terrific segment where he helps dig up some Geoduck & then gets to dine on several different prep methods (raw, sauteed, etc., etc.) right on the beach. Really interesting.

Also, there are several Pacific coast seafood purveyors that will ship them to you during certain times of the year. "Catalina" is one of them.
