mahogany clams?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I saw these at stop and shop today. They were like 4 lbs. for 2 bucks. Has anyone ever tried them for roasting or half shell. I love littlenecks and these look the same size but I find the price to good to be true. I didn't buy them today because i needed clams for party, and did not want my friends to be guinea pigs. Lets here your thoughts on them. Thanks, Dave

They are quite good.

I've bought em twice and didn't like them both times. I used them in a gumbo and in a Zuppa de Pesce (sp?). Both times I found them to have a stronger, fishier flavor and a lot of sand.

Spook, do you think I just got some bad ones? How do you prepare them???

I like the mahoganies, I soak em in water with about a table spoon or so of corn meal or cracker meal (helps get rid of grit) water for about an hour and then rinse them good. I like to cook them on a grill, when they pop open they are done and very good.

If they are that cheap now I know why they are a staple of the Quarterdeck Seafood Buffet.

I do not like them at all. There is no comparing them to a Jersey hard clam.

I rinse them well and grill them.
None of the clams come close to a Louisianna oyster.

They are good in sauce......I throw some in when I make "NJ style" mussles marinara (Hot type!).....just make sure they are all fresh (closed) when you buy them......definately are cheap enough.....

Since I started this thread I will say that I bought 2 #'s and roasted them, after the second clam I threw the rest out, full of sand and very fishy tasting. I will stick with RI littlenecks thank you. Dave

Honestly I have never had them, however my monger recently sent me a "select" little neck & man these things are pearls! I will let you know where they come from, very uniform, plump & tasty... raw or cooked

They Are A Cheap Way Of Mentally Thinking You're Eating Littlenecks
How To Cook
Put A Dozen Mahoghany Clams On A Board- Cook For 10 Minutes- Throw Away The Clams - Eat The Board

Free They Are Excellent

I made the mistake of trying to have some on the half shell. Yuck!

They were OK steamed with wine, parseley, cilantro and onions. Probably OK in marinara too.

They are fine, unless you are used to the real clams. Without them, what would we compare a little neck to????

I had them just the other night, as they were on sale for $1.99/lb. They are good in marinara sauce with mussels, but I wouldn't eat them on the half....
