If you’re tired of cooking the same old things every week and want an interesting and unique recipe, try cooking with geoduck. Pronounced “gooey-duck”, this Northern Pacific clam is becoming a favorite on household plates. What has been considered a delicacy in parts of Asia and can cost an arm and a leg at fine-dining restaurants throughout America, the geoduck name is now more well-known. While the geoduck has an odd look to it, it tastes absolutely wonderful and it is easy to prepare.

Feel like having an Asian-style seafood dinner? Try out this wok-fried geoduck with ginger and scallions. 

First, you need to buy fresh geoduck––we got you! 

Next, learn from Fathom Seafood’s connection with Chef Andrew Zimmern on how to conveniently clean a geoduck…this is a must to ensure you get it ready for this recipe. 

Once the geoduck is clean, rinse and dry the geoduck on paper towels. The next steps are simple! 


  • 2 tsp minced ginger
  • 1 garlic clove, smashed and chopped
  • 3 scallions cut into 2" pieces
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce

  1. Grab the wok and heat it on high with a drizzle of grapeseed oil.
  2. Toss in scallions, garlic, and ginger until you smell the delicious aroma. 
  3. Add sliced geoduck pieces and fry for about 30 seconds. Yes, that’s it!
