Early in our marriage my wife impressed me by pulling off these strange creatures from a rock along the coast of British Columbia. When raw they had a nutty flavor but look like something out of the first alien movie (the thing on John Hurt's face). These were cooked and weren't as tasty. I don't have the exact spelling of the name, but phonetically it sounds like Hy-ish-toop.
