Percebes II - new PIPs 

Pollicipes pollicipes, known as the goose neck barnacle, goose barnacle or leaf barnacle is a species of goose barnacle, also well known under the taxonomic synonym Pollicipes cornucopia. It is closely related to Pollicipes polymerus, a species with the same common names, but found on the Pacific coast of North America, and to Pollicipes elegans a species from the coast of Chile. It is found on rocky shores in the north-east Atlantic Ocean and is prized as a delicacy, especially in the Iberian Peninsula. Here at Nazaré, Portugal.

Amazingly, even serious scientists thought that barnacle geese really did come from barnacles! I'm talking 17th and 18th centuries Britain here (I presume scientists in other countries were more sensible!).
Delicious, very expensive and popular (at least here in Madrid). I don't ever recall seeing them in the UK.
I like them very much but because I had them for the first time in my life when past the age of 50 (me, not the barnacles!), I am not used to eating them and find them very fiddly and time-consuming to extract the meat!

You are right.
There is a technique to cut the "head" slightly bending it and at the same time using your thumbnail do separate the brown tube, i.e. the stem, from it.
Then you just "aspire" the muscle which is inside the brown stem.

Very helpful for next time I am feeling rich!
I didn't see the PiP before - from it you can see how people thought barnacle geese came from them!

C'est três bon mais il n'est pas facile de les trouver en vente et naturellement ils doivent être três frais. Au bout de deux jours après la cuisson (en eau de mer) ils deviennent fades et un peu trop durs.

Billions of bilious blue blistering barnacles! :-)))
(J'aime bien ça, les percebes. J'ai même dû regarder comment on disait en français : des pouce-pieds. Je n'en ai jamais mangé en France...)
