Clams - Hard Shell, Blood, Wild, USA (10lb Bag)
Exotic Blood Clams get their name from their high level of hemoglobin. They are larger and more oblong than Littlenecks, with a black, hairy material covering part of the shell. Their deliciously crisp succulence – not quite as briny as Littlenecks or Cherrystones – makes them a rather unique clam.

Region & Fishery
Blood Clams are thirsty little fellows. That’s why they filter 40 liters of sea water per day, a larger amount than most shellfish.
The rich, sweet flavor and firm, chewy texture of Blood Clams makes them the perfect candidate for acid cooking in ceviche – which is popular in Peru. They also steam beautifully, finished with a simple squeeze of lemon or lime.
Blood Clams are exceptionally high in Vitamin B12 content with traces of Iron and Zinc.
