Fun Fact

While hard shell clams stay close to the surface of the sea floor, Steamer Clams bury themselves more deeply, and extend their long siphons to the sea floor surface.

Product Preparation

You can simply steam these clams in water with lemon, or add a variety of flavors such as garlic, shallots, parsley – even beer. To enjoy, use the siphon as a handle and swirl the clam around in its hot broth or melted butter.

Product Nutrition
