Barnacles or Percebes

Last morning as soon as I woke up and got in to the lodge ,D without even telling me good morning stopped me and told me…… hey Mikel I need to show you something that I saw last night on a piece of wood sitting on the beach during a low tide. She took her camera and talking really fast she was telling me that these criters were like monster and that they were moving. She brought her camera in a hurry and shown me the picture. Do you know what is that? I looked at the picture and after a few secnds I told her……. These things are barnacles, they are not like the ones that we have in Spain but but I am sure that they are barnacles.

As soon as she told me that I took a paring knife and went straight to the beach. Yeah!!!!!!!!! Chef Anthony Bombacci just asked me a month ago if I have had the opportunity of getting some barnacles here in Alaska.

I can tell you right know that yes Chef. Are not the same as the Galician ones but the have a really good flavor.
