It is normal to get a small amount of breakage in shipping this type of soft-shell clam. To learn more about fresh clams and even how to shuck clams see our article, Claminology.
Being a former Bostonian, and living in an area that has horrid seafood for the past 20 years, I get a hankerin' for a good old fashioned clamboil, So I turn to Lobster Anywhere to fill the void. The order is packed with care and attention to detail, there may be a broken clam or two, but they are ok to eat since the product is the freshest around. I recommend using Lobster Anywhere to fill your fresh seafood void as well, you won't be sorry!
We loved how fresh the clams were when they arrived...still cold and alive after delivery from Maine to Washington state. In hindsight, after realizing these clams were different from what we were used to here on the West Coast, it would have been nice to have more instruction on how to process these soft-shell clams (i.e. written, perhaps even a video link). No worries, we ended up making our killer baked clam dip with my mother-in-laws recipe and enjoyed every tasty, clammy bite!
