About Our Clams
You can never go wrong with fresh seafood, and the delicious briny taste of clams is one of our favorites! Steamed, grilled, sautéed, in pasta, deep-fried, or even raw, there are many tasty ways to prepare clams.
How to Clean Clams
Depending on the dish, you may use a variety of techniques to cook your clams, but one thing we always recommend is a quick clean. While our fresh clams always receive an initial cleaning, it’s worth the effort to purge them again in salted water to ensure all the sand is gone and avoid the terrible crunch of a gritty bivalve. After a quick scrub with a stiff-bristled brush, soak your clams for approximately thirty minutes in plenty of salted water. Drain, and place in the fridge under a wet towel until ready to use.
How to cook clams
Once your tasty bivalves are all clean and sand-free, you’re ready to prepare them in any of your favorite ways! The smallest clams are the most desirable for eating raw. As they get progressively larger, the meat within gets tougher, and cooking becomes necessary. Cooking mollusks can be intimidating, but once you get the knack for it you’ll find it a very quick and rewarding process. Whether you’re steaming, stewing, or grilling, the key to getting good results is not to cook them for very long. Overcooking can happen quickly and changes their flesh from tender to tough in a matter of moments. Cook quickly and watch them closely, and as soon as they are heated through, remove them from the heat.
As the clams cook, the shells should naturally open on their own. If it doesn’t open, do not serve it, this could mean that the clam was dead when you received it and potentially contaminated with bacteria or toxins. Now that you have the basic rules for cooking crustaceans down, start adding them to all your favorite dishes for a delicious taste of the sea!
