BBQ Razor Clams

I’m a really big fan of great simple seafood, and especially love to try new things. I’d been after some Razor Clams for a while, and I mentioned this to the friendly fishmongers at Greendale Farm Shop just outside Exeter. They had recently been out foraging and so were able to sell me some. Needless to say I jumped at the opportunity.

I got the clams home and rinsed out any remaining sand, and fired up the BBQ with some white hot coals, I popped the clams on meat side down and grilled them directly over the coals until seared, a couple of minutes, I then turned the clams over with some tongs, and brushed them with garlic, chilli and coriander butter, a squeeze of lemon and a little salt and pepper, until the shells started to char and smoke, another couple of minutes, don’t overcook them or they’ll turn to rubber. At this point the aroma was amazing.

I served the Razor Clams hot and we ate them with our fingers, avoiding the gritty stomach, and enjoyed them with a glass of cold New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, the taste and texture was similar to scallops, slightly sweet and subtly smoky from being cooked over fire.

Cheers
Marcus

Thanks BigM, they are not as fiddly as a lot of seafood, and really quite meaty.
Cheers
