Anyone have this interesting creature in or around town? Looks interesting in an Andrew Zimmern kind of way....
On occasion, a Japanese restaurant will have some (mirugai) but I've never noted it to be that popular a menu item. Chinese restaurants, Kim Phat (Brossard) as Snackhappy has already indicated.
Not particularly hard to prepare; a preliminary blanching will allow you to remove the sheath.
The geoduck and I live in the same state : ) I grew up eating it. We sometimes go geoduck hunting, but they are fast! We always end up laughing ( you have to admit, it looks a bit nasty) and full of beach dirt before the day is done.
The meat is especially great in clam chowder and I also like it in strips, then fried. Mmmmm..... geoduck!
