How to Clean Clams

Clams are quick to prepare and cook but they can be really off-putting if you bite down on gritty sand. Follow the quick tip below for sand-free seafood.

How to Clean Clams

No one likes gritty clams. To prevent sand from tainting a recipe, clams must be properly cleaned before cooking. For hardshell clams, scrub the shells with a stiff brush, then rinse them in cold water. Softshell clams (razors and steamers) must be soaked about 3 hours in heavily salted water to purge them of sand.
