Fun Fact

The Manila Clam is not a native of North America. It was accidentally introduced to Washington State in oyster seed shipments from Japan. Lucky for us!

Product Preparation

Although delicious raw on the half shell, most people steam Manila Clams, or add them to savory recipes such as bouillabaisse because of their pretty shells. We also like them in the traditional, garlicky white clam sauce over pasta.

Product Nutrition

Clams are a low fat, high protein seafood choice with healthful minerals such as Selenium, Zinc, Iron and Magnesium and B Vitamins like Niacin.
