At Pure Food Fish Market, we have the freshest best tasting Manila Steamer Clams you can buy online. Our Manila Steamer Clams are nothing short of appetizing and can be used in pasta dishes, cioppino, soups -- or just plain steamed with garlic and drawn butter! Steamer Clams are soft-shelled Clams (actually not soft, just thinner than usual but still hard-shelled) with littlenecks or cherry stones. Manila Steamer Clams originated in Japan, and are appreciated for their smooth textures and sweet and savory flavor profile. While Manila Steamer Clams originally come from Japan they can be found throughout the US oceans and it is only by pure accident that we can enjoy these wonderful clams in the US today. Export ships from Japan brought Manila Clams to the US by accident in early 1930 in Oysters shipments and since Manila Clams have spread across to different parts of North American. Manila Steamer Clams are very easy to prepare and make a wonderful fresh seafood dinners such as the most famous New England style Clam Chowder.
Fresh Clam Recipes
Manila Steamer Clams can be prepared in many different ways but have often become synonymous as a staple in the famous New England Clam Chowder. But as the name suggests Steamer Clams are perfect for steaming because of their thin shells. Once steamed you can add these delectable clams to your favorite pasta recipes such as garlic spaghetti with clams, or pasta with red clam sauce which is simply steamed clams over top linguine, and crush red tomatoes with spices and herds. Or you can keep it simple and enjoy our Steamer Clams by themselves with a butter lemon garlic sauce.
Nutritional Benefits of Fresh Shellfish
Our Fresh Clams are also highly nutritious and make for a well rounded healthy balanced diet. Like many other kinds of seafood, clams are rich in protein and omega-3 fatty acids, low in calories and cholesterol, and high in other micronutrients such as zinc, vitamin B12, and Zinc. This combination of the nutrients is what makes shellfish perfect for the brain, joint, and heart health.
