These hard shell clams are the traditional East Coast mercenaria or quahog species, with a delicious, mildly sweet flavor with a briny accent. They are 1-1/2 to 2 inches in size (referred to as littlenecks or top necks). Cultivated and harvested by the watermen of Cedar Key, Florida, clams are quick-cooked in their shell, individually quick frozen and vacuum-sealed by the dozen in a convenient boil-in-bag. They arrive to your doorstep frozen, convenient, and ready to be heated and served in minutes.
To prepare, simply boil or steam the clams - in the bag is easiest - for 5-6 minutes and they are ready to serve. You can also add them into your favorite pasta dish, bake them as clams casino, or add them to your chowder recipe. Do not thaw clams prior to cooking.
Each order comes with a simple cooking instruction card for reference.
Each order contains 6 bags with 12 clams per bag, providing a total of 72 clams.
