You’ll recognize soft shell Razor Clams by their narrow, elongated shape. These clams offer a tender but firm texture, mild brininess and a sweeter clam flavor than hard shell Cherrystones and Littlenecks.
Razor Clams are named for their long, convex shape resembling an old-fashioned barber's straight-edged razor.
Razor Clams are tender, so we recommend cooking them fast, or they’ll become tough. Simply dredge them in seasoned flour and quickly pan fry for a real treat. We also enjoy them dicing or grinding them for use in hearty chowders and crispy fritters.
Clams are a low fat, high protein seafood choice with generous levels of healthful minerals such as Selenium, Zinc, Iron and Magnesium and B Vitamins like Niacin.
