Who knew that just three ingredients could become something so delicious? La Brujula’s tins of delicate Razor Shells are kept in a brine consisting of just salt and water. This combination preserves that fresh ocean taste while enhancing the clam’s tender, buttery quality. Hand shucked and packed into tins of saltwater, our razor clams are prepared just a few miles away from where they are caught for a truly fresh taste.
Technically, razor clams are in the same category as littleneck or cherrystone clams, they look, however, absolutely nothing like their small round cousins. These large mollusks are the shape of an elongated oval, and the meat inside is larger and longer than other clams. Thankfully, almost the entirety of the razor shell is perfectly edible and delicious. Because of their size, tins from La Brujula are filled with astonishingly generous fillets. These extra-large clams are perfect for slicing down the center, quickly searing, and lightly dressing with oil and garlic. Chopped up raw and paired with bright citrus flavors they also make for a fancy crudite.
As versatile as they are delightful, try making our Razor Shells into a multitude of dishes. Chopped up and incorporated into a creamy stew, they are the ideal addition to a New England style clam chowder. Fried and combined with fresh greens, they become a delicious seafood salad. Add them to lemon and garlic pasta for a briney infusion and some added texture. No matter how you decide to prepare these delicious clams, they are sure to enhance and complement all your dishes!
