About the product

Produced in Dalian in China. After these Manila clams are shelled, their surfaces are boiled and, after cooling, they are IQF frozen. This allows more of the Manila clams’ true umami to come through than is usually possible. These clams retain the same flavors as living clams, and are easier to use. In addition, they because they are frozen they are easy to have on hand whenever you need them, with no worries about spoiling.

Clams are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. They also contain a great deal of iron, which makes them beneficial for those with deficient iron but also means that those without deficient iron may want to consume them more sparingly.

How to prepare

Take out the quantity of clams (still frozen) you will be using, and soak them in approximately 1% salt water (500ml of water with 1 teaspoon of salt mixed in) to defrost. Once they have defrosted, pat them dry before use.These clams can be used to make traditional Japanese dishes such as takikomi gohan or Fukagawa-don as well as a variety of other dishes from around the world including clam chowder, curry, pasta, stews, and paella. Takikomi gohan is a quick-to-make dish of seasoned rice with small pieces of vegetables, meat, and/or fish mixed in. Fukagawa-don is so called because the Fukagawa River was once a clam-harvesting location. Like other “don” dishes, Fukagawa-don begins with a base of rice. It is then topped with a combination of fried clams, miso, and scallions.
