Percebes

Robert Anzell | Aug 16, 2003 03:09 PM

I have eaten Percebes in Spain which are some of the most delicious seafood items I have ever eaten.They are also known as gooseneck barnacles.
I've heard that the demand in Spain is so great that local supplies are not sufficient to meet demands and so they are actually imported to Spain from areas in the American Northwest.
I would like to know if there is anyplace in the New York area where fresh Percebes (gooseneck barnacles) might be obtained.
Thanks,
Bob Anzell
