Manila Clam

Manila clams are small sweet hard-shell clams best suited for steaming.

Manila clams, which originated from Asia, are widely grown in the Pacific Northwest today.  Sweet in flavor and easy to cook (steaming is recommended), these little clams add delicious flavor and texture to soups, stews and pastas.
