Enjoyed for their tender sweetness and fresh flavor, our colorful Manila clams are great served on their own or part of your favorite pasta dish or cioppino. Partially cooked and clean of grit. As their name implies, “Manila” clams originated in the western Pacific, but ours are cultivated sustainably in the waters of Puget Sound, Washington. Harvest-area waters are constantly monitored for purity, and no harvest occurs without prior approval from State of Washington health authorities.

Safe and easy to enjoy
By law, each batch is tested and certified by the State of Washington as safe to eat raw, before the clams are harvested. Our clams can be thawed and consumed as is, or cooked further from frozen (no thawing required), as you prefer.
After being cleaned and vacuum-packed, our clams undergo immersion in hot water (175°F) for 13 minutes — a process that partially cooks the clams and makes it very easy to pull the meat from the shell.
Note: The “nectar” in the bags is the result of the cooking process and natural juices from the clams.
