I had never seen or heard of a cannoliccho (razor clam) before my husband found them in the local (Phuket) market. He assured me that these straw-shaped oddities were a delicious delicacy in Italy, as he reminisced of his childhood days fishing for them at the bottom of the sea off the coast near Rome.
After they soaked for a few hours (to wash the sand out), he quickly sautéed them for a few minutes in olive oil with garlic and chilies – finished with fresh parsley…and this was the delicious result. Moral of the story – always trust that your natural gourmand husband knows what’s good to eat. ‘Nuff said.
