digging for treasure

Awhile back I interrupted this rosy-cheeked fellow to ask what he was doing.  Rocking Wellies and smelling vaporous, he very graciously demonstrated his digging-for-odd-crustaceans technique. At the time, I thought he called them tejiro, but both Kenkyusha and Google have concluded I'm deluded.

Regardless, of my confoundings here's visual evidence of the transparent shrimp-like critters.
Anyone out there in the black pit of the web-o-sphere know what these critters are called and how I can eat them?

  1. I've seen this kind of thing in anime, and the fansubs translate them as either prongs or "poorman lobster" and when they've coocked them they clean and throw them into a pot of boiling water or grill them along with veggies. Not sure if that's of any help
