Clams (Raw), How to Open

raw clams

When you need the clams without the shells, here’s how to get them.

  1. Hold a clam with the hinged side against a heavy cloth or oven mitt.  Insert an oyster knife or blunt-tipped knife between shell halves.

  2. Gently twist the knife to pry open the shell and release juices.  Be sure to work over a bowl or plate to catch juices.

  3. Holding the clam firmly, move a sharp knife around the clam, cutting the muscle at the hinge.  Gently twist the knife to pry open the shell. Cut the clam meat from the shell.
