Drain the can of Gooseneck Barnacles in Brine, but reserve the juice for later. Remove and discard* the shell from each Gooseneck Barnacle. Set Gooseneck Barnacle meat aside.

Dice the tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, avocado, and red bell pepper. Place them in a large mixing bowl. Squeeze the lime and lemon and pour juice of both over the mixture. Pour in the reserved juice from the Gooseneck Barnacles.

Add the Gooseneck Barnacle meat to the mixing bowl with the vegetables. Add a tablespoon of olive oil to the mixture for a touch of richness and flavor.

Gently toss all the ingredients together until they are well combined. 

Cover the ceviche mixture and refrigerate it for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors meld together.

*In keeping with European tradition, Gooseneck Barnacles are canned with the shells on, so be ready for the unique visual feast upon opening your tin and seeing something more akin to baby dinosaur toes than your everyday barnacle. We suggest you dry the beautiful shells and add them to your curios collection...
