You will spot Steamer Clams by their protruding siphons, which inhibit them to close completely. These are semi-purged in seawater, with meat that’s tenderer than Littlenecks and Cherrystones, featuring a sweet, clean ocean flavor. While these have been soaked briefly to get the majority of the sand and grit off of them, there is still a need to purge them before consuming.
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.
Clams are a great choice for seekers of a high protein seafood choice with excellent amounts of Selenium, Zinc, Iron and Magnesium and B Vitamins like Niacin.
