Little neck clams


Recommended Posts

I just picked up 2 pounds of little neck clams from my fishmonger. He asked what I was doing with it and after telling him of my plans to cook it in red sauce. He suggested to give the clams an ice bath after steaming them open? It’s supposedly makes the clams plumper. 


Have any any of you done it? Worked well for you? Do you keep clams in shell or take out of shell  to do ice bath treatment?
