How to cook frozen clams in the shell
Simply reheat the frozen clams for about 8-10 minutes. You can boil or steam them inside the bag, steam them out of the bag, or even sauté them directly on the grill.
Similar to cooking mussels, preparing frozen clams is a quick process. The clams should only be exposed to direct heat for a short period to ensure the delicate flesh doesn't harden and lose flavour. A simple way to avoid overcooking is to gently prepare the frozen clams in juice or soup over low heat.
Recipe ideas for our precooked frozen clams
Clams have a very soft and delicate flesh. For this reason, avoid preparing them with intense flavours that can mask the natural clam taste. Sauté the frozen clams with garlic or wine, add diced vegetables and herbs, then pour the clam juice over a starch or serve with bread for dipping.
