Video: Digging for Razor Clams

| July 7, 2011 | 3 Comments

One of the delights of living in Oregon is digging for razor clams. These succulent shellfish are delicious in chowder or even better, dredged in egg and bread crumbs and then quickly fried. Digging for razor clams is fun and hard work, but worth the effort. Watch our video and see how.

    Love the video! Brought back some memories, altho’ I never used a clam gun. Loved the “Willamette” sweatshirt - product placement! Good job, Allison!

    Enjoyed watching you guys having fun clamming. Now show us how to clean them! I haven’t done either in almost 40 years and decided a couple of weeks ago to start again after a completely fabulous dinner of razor clams in Astoria at the Silver Salmon. My husband has never clammed but is completely game to try. I’m showing him your video. Bravo on your successful hunt, and thanks for the instruction!
