Our steamer clams are semi-purged in salt water to get the majority of the sand off, but we recommend soaking them in salted water in the fridge for 30 minutes before cooking.
Consuming raw or undercooked meats, poultry, seafood, shellfish, or eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness. We recommend cooking your seafood to an internal temperature of 145°F for 15 seconds.
