Anthony Bourdain's "No Reservations" show had a segment on digging, preparing, & cooking Geoduck on the "Pacific Northwest" episode. Interesting stuff. And the clam, once cooked, looked delicious - like chunks of giant soft-shell/steamer, which is pretty much what a Geoduck is.

I could never get away with serving that here - not with 5 sons! We'd all have milk coming out of our noses.

I think I'd have to stick a lot of feathers in that monster to pull that off.

Geoduck is really good. IMO it's better served raw, or "cooked" like a ceviche.

I first saw the Frugal Gourmet preparing these things on TV. I didn't know that's how you spelled "gooey duck".

Hey, I love fried calamari and cracked conch, so I would definitely try a "gooey duck" dish!

it's just a giant piss clam, or ipswich clam, what's the big deal? (unless you're a mascot).

i'd like mine shabu shabu with clam broth, and a little ghee, please.
