Clams are one of the most popular items we sell. Clams have a delicious, savory flavor. Their serving size makes them easy to prep for a party of 1 or 100 and they cook quickly. Plus, they are packed with health benefits like omega-3s, vitamins, and more.

Our clams are available fresh in the shell or freshly shucked. If you’re not sure which size clam to purchase, consider your cooking method. The larger the clam, the chewier the meat. You’ll want to cook large clams longer to counteract that toughness. Larger clams, like Topnecks and Chowders, are good for stuffing, frying, sauces, chowders, and soup. Smaller clams, like Littlenecks and Middlenecks are good for quickly steaming, grilling, or eating raw.

CLAM SIZES

Littleneck Clams: about 10 clams per pound

Middleneck Clams: about 6-8 clams per pound

Topneck Clams: about 4-6 clams per pound

Chowders: about 2-3 clams per pound

COOKING METHODS

Grill, Deep-fry, Bake, Sautée, Steam

Freezing clams in-shell before preparation makes them much easier to shuck.
