Perfect Cut! – video |Tairagai|

This is one of my favorite shellfish named Tairagai and it is often served with a hint of yuzu peel grated over a Japanese copper tool which you can see here being used for fresh wasabi: http://mesubim.com/2015/03/26/wasabi-oroshigane-video/. Tairagai is found also in the Mediterranean and the Aegean seas but the preparation there is not technical and instinctive. The name for Tairagai in English is pen shell and in Greece its called Penas.
