“A simple recipe for fried razor clams, a western Washington treat. Sometimes I fry the bodies, reserving the tougher necks for chowder. Dip in cocktail sauce. The spicier the better for me!”

Absolutely the best fried clams I've ever had. I didn't have any crackers, so I substituted with Panko and flour: I had the eggs in one bowl, Panko in another bowl, and then the flour mixed with all the other spices in another bowl. Dipped the clams in the egg, then in the flour mixture, then in the panko and fried till golden brown. Yum!!! My husband, who isn't really a big fan of fried clams, thought they were delicious and ate them right up. Although I've lived in WA for over 15 years, this was my first time digging for, then preparing and eating razor clams. Now I'm a huge fan! =) Note: It's really super important to be sure to clean these clams properly, as well as to make sure they are thoroughly patted dry with paper towels before you begin.

I love this recipe!! I grew up digging these little suckers, and eating them just like this. If you want to cook razor clams this is the only way beside clam chowder or fritters.
