Whole Clams | Frozen Box | Hand harvested | 2kg
HAND PICKED CLAMS
In culinary circles, clams are prized for their subtle salty flavour and their ability to infuse this flavour into whatever they are cooked with. Our Mozambican clams are sourced from artisans who dig the clams from the mudflats by hand. These people have been harvesting and cleaning clams for generations using time tested methods. The clams are then frozen in Mozambique to lock in their salty flavour and then shipped to Greenfish.
Your box will arrive frozen, simply store in your freezer (up to 3 months) and use at your leisure. It is best to remove product from packaging to defrost (do not thaw under vacuum/pressure), simply place on a tray in your fridge and allow to thaw slowly.
Collecting seafood by hand is one of the most sustainable fishing methods. Because each clam is selected by the harvester, there is no chance of bycatch and less harm done to the surrounding environment. Not only are our clams harvested using traditional, sustainable methods, but our support helps provide employment within the Mozambican clam industry.

We’re happy to share this delicious clam pasta from our partner site The Fishwife. You will need:
- 2kg Greenfish Clams in Shells
- 300g Linguine
- 1/4 cup Olive Oil
- 1/2 Tbsp Crushed Garlic
- 1 cup White Wine
- 1 Lemon (juiced)
- 1 cup Heavy Cream
- 3 Tbsp Chopped Parsley
- Salt & Pepper
- Use a vegetable brush to give the clams a quick scrub under some fresh water, so as to remove any dirt or loose broken shell that could end up in your dish.
- Set clams aside for later.
- On the stove, cook the linguine in a pot of boiling water for approximately 7 minutes.
- While the linguine is cooking, add the olive oil and garlic to a large pan/skillet and on a medium high heat cook for roughly 1-2 minutes.
- Add the wine and lemon juice.
- Add the clams and allow them to steam in the wine broth for about 5 minutes.
- While the clams are steaming the pasta should be done. Remove from the pot and drain.
- Once the clams have finished steaming add the linguine and cream.
- Add the parsley, salt and pepper.
- Combine and allow to cook together for a minute and then remove from the stove and enjoy!

Super fast delivery and by far the best clams we have ever had
3rd time purchasing the clam box - so that says something! Great product and value, and wonderful service: ordered around 10h00 and received it the same day (before 5pm in the northern suburbs). Keep up the amazing work, my family's bellies thank you!
I made a very tasty soup this morning. The clams were delicious! Very tasty and high quality. I definitely consider purchasing this product again the the near future.
I ordered 3 packs of clams in the morning and they arrived early afternoon. I made Spaghettti vongole for dinner with a pack and a half and kept the rest in the freezer. These clams are the BOMB. Perfect, juicy with a good flavour. Delicious
The clams and octopus were excellent - have not cooked calamari yet. Service was exactly as promised- will definitely buy again
Great service and super fast delivery. the clams were clean and tasted good. As this was my first time having clams and following the linguine clams recipe from fishwife.co.za I cannot be more satisfied with how it came out. A fantastic experience from order, delivery, to cooking and to the table.
Next day delivery. Delivery person was so nice. Clams in superb connection and super fresh. Will not order fish or seafood from anywhere else.
I love clams. The clams arrive frozen in a plastic bag, so an easy stash in the freezer. This is another mid week winner as it tastes delicious but is super quick and easy to make. I love making clam pasta with linguini. Just requires an onion, garlic, parsley and a lemon. Give it a try - I love dishes that are super simple and easy, but seem really fancy! A great way to incorporate non-red meat options into your weekly menu.
Ordered on Greenfish for the first time, not only did I received exceptionally fast service, the quality of the clams were outstanding. Definitely will use greenfish again.
Excellent quality. Will be a regular on this site
The clams were beautifully succulent and quite big compared to many others that I have bought from different sources. As always with Greenfish the ordering and delivery process is fast and efficient. I made the most delicious Spaghetti Vongole, as one must when you have clams. Served with a crisp glass of white wine, it's a seaside summer dish to die for and super simple to make.
Have not used the product but it looks real good and freshly frozen
Best clam I ever tasted
Steam these open, chill, and serve with a Dijon vinaigrette for a fabulous starter. Delish! Greenfish is the best! Love their service!
It was so delicious. Thanks:)
