    How do you prepare your razor clams? I did a forum search and didn't find anything.

    Although I will be looking for a whitetail this weekend, I always hit the beach when the digs happen and have a vacuum packed portion of chopped meat ready to go. With the longer hours of darkness, there is plenty of time to cook something up good at deer camp.

    Any suggestions?

    Clam linguine. There’s two camps on recipes. White cream sauce or wine sauce. Both are good.

    Once cleaned, I throw a paper towel around the meat in a 1 gallon zip lock bag, and then proceed to take a rubber mallet and pound them into submission. Loosening them up a little bit. Then I'll either dust them with ground ritz crackers and lawrys and bake or fry them..Otherwise new england clam chowder, but I fine chop the meat before I add in!

    I'm going to make this one for dinner tonight while still at the house. A bowl of hot chowder is just the ticket to take the chill off this evening.

    I'll get Garrett's recipe together to take with me. I like the idea of doing the prep work for that one in my kitchen and finishing it in the field.

    With one package of clams left, I'll save those to cook up when my daughter and future son in law come in from North Carolina for turkey day, probably picking from one of the other suggestions.

    Good eats!

    Pan fry in hot oil....dip in beat egg, roll in Krusteaz or panko....fry quickly on both sides until brown. Homemade tarter sauce (graded pickle/relish/onion powder/Worcester sauce/pickle juice). My dad is rolling over in his grave with the chowder ideas...that old German loved his fried clams! Heading down tomorrow...clam on!

    Here's an example...forgot about mom adding dry mustard to Krusteaz or panko--help them brown

    You’ll love this recipe, it’s easy and delicious. The only thing I have changed is I sink a whole stick of butter in just before the clams go in and I double the bacon - clogged aorta be damned!!

    Lots of great recipes showing up, couple things I do is butterfly the digger and then roll in Bisquick then an egg bath then either fine Ritz cracker powder or I find a seasoned instant mashed potato (sourcream and onion, or roasted garlic etc...) and roll them in there and panfry hot and quick. Making chowdah always use BIG chunks of clams and alot of them, nothing I hate worse then eating chowdah and only finding bacon to chew on. If you have to have bacon in your chowdah grind that shit up super fine for the flavor of it but leave the hero large and in charge !!

    O.K. That's a home run!
    Well, I didn't put the butter in... but it was excellent!

    Thanks for passing the recipe on.

    With 15 large clams in the pot, there’s no shortage!! I agree though, clam chowder anywhere else might as well be potato soup!

    I like to roll them in McCormick Cajun breading/seasoning, then fry. It's a very light coating compared to flour, egg, crackers.
