How to Prepare a Geoduck
We go behind the scenes at last year’s South Beach Wine & Food Festival to show you how to prepare the most delicious clam in the world. I often say eating geoduck is like kissing a mermaid. Try it and I guarantee you’ll agree. The giant clam can be daunting to prepare, watch this quick tutorial before you get started.
First, use a blowtorch to soften the tough skin.
Gently remove the skin.
Run a knife along one side of the shell and pry open.
Remove the reproductive organ.
Thinly slice the breast and neck.
Serve raw with soy sauce and lemon.
