Grilled Razor Clams

Monahan's Seafood Market | Fresh Whole Fish, Fillets, Shellfish, Recipes, Catering & Lunch Counter-Ann Arbor, Michigan

Razor Clams are something we try to get into the market when we can…we don’t see them a lot here in Michigan because harvesting is difficult and they are very brittle, fragile, don’t travel well and are very perishable. Our razor clam supplier gives us a heads-up whenever they have them but unfortunately that is not often enough. Sweet and tender they are one of our finest clams (when we can get our hands on them).

Rinse clams under running cold water. Set aside.

Prepare grill…when it’s nice and hot, make sure the grate has been oiled. Lay clams meat-side-up over grill. Baste with soy sauce or garlic and olive oil (a nice variation is to add a little chopped jalapeño pepper and cilantro or your favorite fresh herbs).

Grill until clam opens up and the meat firms up (about 4-5 min). Arrange on a platter and serve with more sauce for dipping with some nice crusty bread.
