Clams are bottom dwellers, living rooted in sand and they get their nourishment from sucking in itty bitties of water and sand along with it. Thus, they have a tendency to be sandy or gritty if not rinsed well. No need with our clams! At Effing Seafoods we hold our clams in our live tanks for a minimum of 24 hours to allow them to purge or spit out any sand they may still have in them and give our customers the freshest cleanest clams around!
Trust your Effing fishmonger to supply only the best product available.
An important part of making clams is to be sure to pick through for any half open or damaged clams before cooking but at Effing Seafoods we always try to inspect our product before it leaves the store.
