Fresh Razor Clams
Fresh as a daisy (or a razor clam)! Ours certainly are and will wriggle back inside the shell when touched to prove it. As the MCS recommends our razor clams are always above 10cm in length(usually 15 plus), in order to preserve sustainability.? It is necessary to properly clean and prepare razor clams before cooking. This takes some time, as each razor clam needs to be checked individually. Check the clams are closed – any open shells should close when gently tapped.
The classic method for cooking razor clams is by steaming them in a flavoured liquid, perhaps with a splash of wine and some sweated onions and garlic, though there are all kinds of methods that flatter their sweet, delicate meat.
