Monster Hands

02 May

Please give a scary looking hand to my newest mystery meat.  If anyone out there can tell me what this thing is actually called I would greatly appreciate it!

Angie’s dad has come home a few time now with these tasty little morsels.  He apparently goes out to his secret fishing spot and literately scrapes them off of the rocky walls with a putty knife by the bucket full.

Their flavor resembles that of a mussel or a clam and has the texture close to squid.  To cook them he begins by soaking them in water then rinsing thoroughly, repeating this process 2-3 times.  This is to try to remove as much sand as possible.  They are then once again put into a pot full of lightly salted water and brought just to the boil.  Drain off the water and these little guys are the perfect little snack.  Move over bowl of peanuts…these monster hands go way better with a pint of beer.

    I’m assuming these little fellers are found in sea water as I believe this is where he goes fishing.
