Geoduck, Pacific Northwest

The leathery siphon protruding from the six-inch shell of this odd-looking deep-water clam can reach up to three feet in length. Geoduck (pronounced goo-ee-duck) hail from the coasts of Washington State and British Columbia, typically weigh about three pounds and can live to be 100 years old. At Shiro's Sushi Restaurant in Seattle, sushi master Shiro Kashiba thinly slices the sweet, chewy siphon and serves it as sashimi; the tender body meat is sautéed in butter with shiitake mushrooms and asparagus.
