Frequently Asked Questions
How do I store Clearwater Arctic Surf Clams?
Clearwater Arctic Surf Clams should be stored in your freezer until you are ready to defrost them for use.
What’s the best way to defrost Clearwater Arctic Surf Clams?
For best results, we recommend defrosting Clearwater Arctic Surf Clams overnight in your refrigerator. For quick defrost, place clams in a sealed bag and immerse in cold water for 30 minutes. Do not defrost in the microwave. Do not refreeze after thawing.
Do I need to cook Clearwater Arctic Surf Clams?
Clearwater Arctic Surf Clams are ready-to-serve and are best used in cold applications, such as sushi or salads. They can also be used in a hot dish, such as stir-fry and soup, if they are added at the very end to prevent over-cooking. If over-cooked and exposed to excess heat, clam meat can become very chewy in texture.
What is blanching?
After Clearwater Arctic Surf Clams are harvested, they go through a quick blanching process, in which they are plunged into hot water for a short amount of time, removed and then plunged into ice water to halt the cooking process. This allows the meat to separate from the shell, giving the clam a very juicy texture with a slight crunch and fresh taste.
How long can I keep Clearwater Arctic Surf Clams in my freezer?
Please refer to the best before date on the packaging.
How long can I keep Clearwater Arctic Surf Clams once they have been defrosted?
After defrosting, Clearwater Arctic Surf Clams can be stored in your refrigerator for one day.
