  1. Cool.

    Ready to go into the pot with some white wine, garlic, shallots and butter !! (hold the thyme !)

    Or a simple dip of ponzu and cilantro :-D

    1. Looks interesting! Any places you know of that are serving or selling them now?

        Blue Water Cafe had them as a special (appetizer) when I was there a few weeks ago.

            Honestly I can't recall, as we didn't order them. Sorry!

      2. Saw them up and down the Oregon coast ... some big 'uns there.

        1. What kind of grill setup is that handsome biologist using?
