razor shell clam

[English] plural razor shells

The term 'razor shells' applies to almost any of the long clams which bed themselves into the sand. They are most often used in stews or served raw or grilled and served with a little lemon juice. Razor shells are quite easy to coax out of the sand by the judicious sprinkling of salt. IThey will then start to move out of the sand, but you have to grab them with both hands and hold on hard.
