Surf clams are a native shellfish to New Zealand’s pristine coastal waters. They exist in the turbulent surf zone, rich in food, up to 10 metres under the sea bed. This environment ensures the shellfish develop an outstanding quality and taste profile.
The Storm Shell has two distinct and different flavours. The long white tongue has a deep, rich aroma of fresh cream and a sweet flavour of clean, fresh scallops. The body has a deep, robust sea kelp aroma and an intense shellfish flavour, reminiscent of sea urchin and crayfish.
Stormshell clams are very large with aprox. 7-9 pieces per kg.
