    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.

    CONTENT

    2kg Clams

  • Instructions

    Your whole Clams 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.

    After harvesting they then go to the factory for cleaning and purging which is a 48 hour process whereby aerated water is pumped through the holding tanks to agitate and ensure they open up to rid themselves of sand and any other organisms. Any dead clams in this stage are discarded. This step is strictly monitored.

    It is best to steam Clams, not boil them, for +-7 minutes. If some of the Clams do not open do not be alarmed the cold chain has been maintained since the time of harvest. The abductor muscle due to rigor mortis could have tensed up preventing the shell from opening up while steaming. Unless it does not smell right then they will be fine to consume.

  • Eco rating

    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.

  • Fishwife Recipes

    Linguini Clams

    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

    Preparation:

    1. 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.
    2. Set clams aside for later.
    3. On the stove, cook the linguine in a pot of boiling water for approximately 7 minutes.
    4. 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.
    5. Add the wine and lemon juice.
    6. Add the clams and allow them to steam in the wine broth for about 5 minutes.
    7. While the clams are steaming the pasta should be done. Remove from the pot and drain.
    8. Once the clams have finished steaming add the linguine and cream.
    9. Add the parsley, salt and pepper.
    10. Combine and allow to cook together for a minute and then remove from the stove and enjoy!

          Clams

          Clams were delicious but unfortunately quite a few did not open!

          Giorgio Locatelli and Green Fish ’s Clams??

          …'Linguine alle Vongole’, for the real taste of the sea. No-brainer :)) Thanks GF for defrosting clams before delivery. I was able to use them immediately. Kept the defrost water in the bag, drained it through a coffee filter paper to remove any shell or sand bits, then added this water to the pot for cooking the pasta to enhance the flavour of the pasta. BTW, my friend Georgio recommends a quick 30 sec soak in cold salty water 'a la sea water’ to encourage the clams to spit out any sand. Easy to handle clams and totally yummy dish that salutes such beautiful clams!

          very bad i fear. i googled them and then got terrified of eating them because frozen shellfish is lethal if not treated properly. i thought i was getting clam meat for some reason. i just love any wild food particularly shell fish but i made a dreadful mistake which i can ill afford being a pensioner. But i would try again if i didn't have to pay, the smaller ones are better i understand. i found some in a delicatessen i sometimes use but i am too bang to buy any more. But if you send me some i will cook them and i have a cookery column in the Daily Mail and if i live, i will write bout how to cook them. i wanted to make clam chowder.

          To chowder, or not to chowder..?

          Hi Greenfish :) Firstly, I was flabbergasted after ordering the frozen clams - with an image in my mind of the smaller variety - that they were so large. I was also shaky on how to defrost them… Thanks for having the ‘Help’ line, even on a weekend! I learnt that the best defrost method for any fish is to unpack and expose under a cool ar fan!! Who’d have guessed? Following my recipe for steaming them open, more than half didn’t open…! A big breath and 3 more minutes and the majority them opened. Ottelinghi says “…if they don’t open, drop them on the floor. They’ll get such a fright they’ll open. I made a ‘Pasta Vongole’, which is not so much about the clam meat, but the sauce they create while cooking - full of flavour of the sea, rich and creamy and very more-ish. Next time, 2kg’s! BTW, 1kg was a generous meal for 4 hungry peeps :))

          Clam Box

          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.

          Juicy delicious clams

          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

          Linguine Clams a must try

          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.

          Clam delight!

          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.

          Sublime!

          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.

          Steam these open, chill, and serve with a Dijon vinaigrette for a fabulous starter. Delish! Greenfish is the best! Love their service!
