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.
