    You never want to fry a razor clam more than 2 min. total in the oil other wise they will get tough. We like them about 20 seconds on each side after they have dipped in an egg wash, then crushed saltiens. Very tender that way.

    Yep, that's the "secret" for a lot of sea food, if you cook it, just barely or you have to cook it much longer to get it somewhat chewable.

And they were so much bigger than the ones down here. For those not from the PNW the picture is of a Geoduck.
    And it's pronounced "gooeyduck."

    a note about the plastic traps...there is a space in them for a piece of degradable material (most use a soft wood slat)...so if the buoy line gets detached they do not become death traps...

    We have been using a "bio" since the early 80's and while it is a little different for each type of pot the result is the same, after a couple months it creates a way for crab to escape.

    Pete's recipe for prep and frying is right on target. Just did this.....tender and wonderful. Edlegault.....the patty recipe sounds good. Never did our clams that way but reminds me of the salmon patties my Mom used to make when I was a kid. My wife is going to give it a try.......can't wait. I make my own cocktail sauce with ketchup, horseradish and Chulula. Tastes pretty good on fried clams.....would be good on the patties. All this talk is making me hungry....better go have leftover clam!

    I was unaware of the polymer traps. Thanks for posting. I can also remember when you were only allowed to take one claw until that method was changed.

    I've always been very fond of shrimp cocktail and quite a few years ago, one day I found we were out of the cocktail sauce, but had ketchup and Kraft horseradish sauce in the refrigerator. I haven't bought any real cocktail sauce since; really prefer the homemade with just the 2 ingredients.

    If you want to make real seafood cocktail sauce, it's ketchup, ground hot horseradish, worchestershire sauce and lemon juice.

    Tartar sauce is more complicated:

    2 cups mayonnaise
    2 tablespoons minced shallot or onion
    2 tablespoons minced dill pickle
    2 tablespoons sweet relish
    2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    2 teaspoons drained and minced capers
    1/8 teaspoon hot sauce such as Tabasco

    That's the real stuff. You can leave out some ingredients if you have to or want to. I commonly leave out the hot sauce. The capers are the secret ingredient.
