Fresh Clams

Buyer's Guide - Clam - Fresh Clams

Handling and Preparation Instructions

Make sure the shells are all tightly closed. If the shells are gaping slightly, tap the clam and it should close. If it doesn't, it's dead and must be thrown away. Clams should be stored in the bottom of your refrigerator where they will keep for 2 days. To prepare, drop the clams in a few inches of boiling water or stock, butter, chopped parsley, a cup of white wine, and a pinch of salt. When the shells open, remove them from the liquid and serve immediately with a bit of the liquid spooned overtop. For more recipes, please refer to Crab Place recipes section.

Fresh Clams Shelf Life:
  • Fresh: will last up to 3 days in the refrigerator
  • Once cooked: will last up to 3 days in the refrigerator
