Meet… Fresh Gooseneck Barnacles (Percebes)

Pacific Gooseneck Barnacles (Percebes) are almost indistinguishable from the coveted Percebes of Spain and Portugal. In Spain and Portugal, seafood lovers prize percebes above lobster or shrimp. Extremely unique and delicious, these are often described as reminiscent of lobster claw meat. This season runs from January through September. Although percebes may look daunting to cook it’s actually very easy. Our preferred ways to cook them are to steam or simmer them in heavily salted water. That’s it. No need to season them beyond the salted water and then serve them with some lemon slices.

Shipped whole in 2 pound increments (weighing live and wet animals isn't easy but every honest effort will be made to get as close to this exact weight as possible!)

Should be consumed within 48 hours of delivery.

Merrick Shellfish

Evan O'Brien and the products he harvests are unique for a LOT of reasons. First, he harvests wild Alaskan Scallops and Gooseneck Barnacles by hand in the frigid waters off Sitka Alaska. Second, the products he harvests are unique and being offered for the first time through pilot permits he’s been issued. Both products are handled with the utmost care and shipped live within hours of being out of water.

Once cooked, they should be tender and taste fresh and briny like an oyster.
