Live Cloudy Bay Storm Clams kg
Harvested in the deeper regions of the surf zone, 4 to 8 metres, the imposing Storm Clam has a distinctive angular shell which is white with pale straw coloured bands. The smoother deep cupped shell holds a clam which is almost two separate parts – a long pearl white tongue and a deep ochre coloured body. With a total meat to shell ratio of more than 30%, the Storm Clam is unique in the world of shellfish. Ideal for use in single serves on the half shell or alone as meat and tongue, the Storm Clam is versatile, interesting and unique.
Taste Profile | The Storm Clam is two distinct flavours in one shell. The long, white tongue has a deep, rich aroma of fresh cream and a sweet, clean flavour of fresh scallop. The body has a deep, robust sea kelp aroma and an intense shellfish flavour, reminiscent of sea urchin and crayfish. The tongue has the texture of fresh calamari, the body has a deep, full texture with a firm bite when cooked.
