Alaskan Razor Clams

Alaskan Razor Clams are some of the best eating clams in the Pacific Northwest, if not in the country.

We got about 10 pounds of them from my son, Tyler’s friend a couple months ago and had them in the freezer. I thought it would make a nice spring dish to welcome in the warmer temperatures and start our plans o fishing adventures this summer down on the Kenai and in the local streams.




This dish is really simple to make:

1 pound cleaned razor clams

1 stick (1/2 cup) butter

Lemon slices

Old Bay Seasoning

Italian seasoning


Melt butter in a sausepan. Lay lemon slices on a cookie sheet covered with aluminum foil. Pour buter on the cookie sheet and place clams on the sheet evenly spaced. Shake a liberal amount of Old Bay and Italian seasoning on the clams. Broil about 10 inches below the broiler for 8 to 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
