Razor Clams


A large softshell clam found specifically on the North American west coast. The sweet meat can be sliced up and sauteed and used in pasta or soup. Most often the meat is dredged in a batter and deep fried and served with fries like fish and chips. The name comes from the long shape of the clam shell that resembles an old-fashioned folded, straight razor.
When in season, digging for razor clams is a popular west coast activity.
