Don Gastronom (La Narval) Razor Clams in Brine 6/8


I don’t know what it is about clams and me, but I love them in practically all their forms. Surf clam sashimi, New England clam chowder, hand-breaded fried clams at the shore, and tinned razor clams are some of my favorites. These are great straight from the tin with a squeeze of lemon, but they really shine when incorporated into dishes. They can be used to upgrade just about any recipe that calls for white clams (you may need to cut the pieces down for some presentations). Helen recently made Pan Bagnat and substituted razor clams for tuna and it was probably the best sandwich I had all year.

    My first foray into razor clams. I’ve only ever seen the empty shells at the beach, and I must say, this was the weirdest looking tin that I have seen yet. The six clams in the tin had a bright smell of the sea and the flavor that you would expect of a clam. The texture was tender for with just a slight bit of chew. I just ate them straight from the tin with a splash of Espinaler sauce. I would not use a hot sauce as it would mask the mild flavor of the clams. I did strain & freeze the brine to use in soup later. Razor clams are expensive and a quick glance at RTG’s site these Don Gastronoms are one of the more affordable ones.

    Enjoyed these straight from the tin with a toothpick and a michelada. Tender with a slight chew. Had a profound taste of the briney water in a delightful way. These would be delightful lightly grilled integrated into a pasta. Will be coming back for seconds.

    This was my first time trying tinned seafood in brine and it completely blew me away. The sweet briny flavor of the seafood is preserved so well in this medium, and the clams retain their tender chew that reminds me of eating a fresh-steamed pot on the beach. This tin makes me more excited to try more brine-packed variety.

    Oh man do I love razor clams. The flavor (brine) was absolutely perfect. I tossed these with some hand cut pasta I made and it came out exceptional. They did have a bit of grit to them but nothing to ruin it. Would absolutely recommend.

    I had to come back to the site to post my review after lunch!! This is my second time having tinned razor clams, and I’m SO ready to get more of these. They’re big, tasty, and of great quality. I followed the recipe inside the box that said to heat them with the brine and lemon juice until it evaporates. I then ate them on toasted rolls. YUM!! I also tried it with some Kari Kari garlic chili crisp oil and whoa- so delicious.

    Definitely reordering these!!

    These were a real treat and maybe my favorite tin of razor clams I’ve had to date! No grit and a really nice flavor/texture. Made a compound with Fresno Chili’s, garlic, shallot, parsley and lemon zest that I sautéed the clams in which was a fantastic combination that I highly highly recommend! This is a great bang for your buck tin if you want high quality razor clams but don’t want to spend a ton of money.
