It's big. It's weird. It's delicious.
Our Smoked Geoduck (pronounced "gooey-duck") was born of an idea from the diver himself, and when those doing the heavy lifting ask, we answer! This giant, rare clam is wild-harvested by hand from the seafloors neighboring our home on Prince of Wales Island, but due to a lack of domestic market demand, nearly all of the harvest is shipped live overseas. We hope to change that, and thanks to strong relationships with our local diving fleet—and adventurous eaters like you!—we've been able to create and help nurture a new market here at home for nature's most curious clam.
Tasting notes: A giant clam with a mild flavor, firm texture, and appetizing golden color. Dry-cured with salt, sugar, and spices before smoking. We call it clam bacon.
Serve it up: One of our favorite ingredients to experiment with in our test kitchen, we recommend introducing yourself to this local favorite as a simple cracker-topper or just digging in with your bare hands. Once you've become properly acquainted, set yourself up with our Geoduck Bloody Caesar and whip up any of our Galley's simple Smoked Geoduck pasta dishes. Our Smoked Geoduck can be used as a substitute in any recipe that calls for clams, like our recipe for thick and creamy Smoked Geoduck clam chowder.
