What you will need:

3tbs of butter
1 pinch of salt
1 pinch of pepper
4 basil leafs chopped
2 cloves of garlic finely chopped
1 tbs of rosemary
1/2 tbs of soy sauce


Directions:

Put clams on foil. Mix butter, pepper, salt & soy sauce and drizzle over the clams. Finally sprinkle rosemary, garlic,basil over the clams. Fold the foil bag and roll the ends and put into the oven preheated at 350, cook for 10 minutes.

Also you can add cooked/chopped bacon pieces then wrap the foil. Cut up a lime or lemon and squeeze the juice onto the cooked clams.

Enjoy!

Looks delicious...I wonder how would this technique work with oysters and many of the other shellfish. Thanks for the recipe!

Does look good. I went striper fishing yesterday and got no love but did manage to bring home a couple gallons of clams. This was dinner tonight. 14266 Still not my favorite but keeps the wife happy. Can pretty much eat anything with enough rice and hot sauce.

So, how do you go about harvesting these? Are you getting them form the Delta, or from the lakes and reservoirs?

I got these out of the river near Garcia Bend but I think most any sandbar would be good. Mostly just raked them out of the sand with my hands but am going to build a rake at work sometime in the next week. A normal clam rake has too big of spacing's. I have been looking at making a modified sand flea rake. I think it would work OK. When I was leaving I saw a couple guys with a big rake collecting them but not sure what it looked like.

Lakes and Rivers that have sandbars or sandy shores are the best place to go I think.

Also building/buying a clam rake is a great idea.

I once was told, and have read that freshwater clams taste like silt and aren't the best things to be eating, but your pictures make them seem anything but that.
