Characteristics

CharacteristicsSmall but sweet, you’ll love these clams!  They cook up quickly with a delicious flavor.

For Your Menu

MenuEnjoy Manila Clams steamed, add them to soups and stews, pair them with pasta. You may find them less salty than other clams, so think about adding a salty note like bacon.

For Your Waitstaff

Wait StaffThese clams originally came to the Pacific Northwest mixed in with Pacific Oyster seed that was imported to North America during the 1940’s. And we’re glad they did! Manila clams are so popular, aquaculture is needed to keep up with the demand…
