  • Waiting:


  • About 600g (1-1½lb) Razor Clams, in-shell
  • 60g (¼-cup) Lime Juice
  • 20g (2T) Red Onion, diced
  • 15g (3½t) Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 5g (⅓-½) Jalapeño Pepper, finely diced
  • 8g (½-cup) Cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1g (½t) Pink Peppercorn, coarsely ground
  • 4g (1t) Granulated Sugar
  • 1 medium Vine-Ripened Tomato, diced


  • Rinse and shuck the razor clams using a paring knife. Keep only the meaty portion of each razor clam.
  • Thoroughly clean each razor clam with cold water, then slice into edible portions.
  • In a medium bowl, mix the lime juice, onion, olive oil, pepper, cilantro, and peppercorn.
  • Toss the clams with the lime juice mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Add the sugar to the ceviche. Dice the tomato and add to the clams right before serving. Mix well, and serve cold.

*Bunny Wisdom*

  • To shuck the clams, run your knife along the bottoms and tops of each clam to loosen the meat. Remove any stringy parts, sand, and the dark portions. Place them back into ice-cold water.
  • After juicing the limes, you have the option to strain or keep the pulp.
  • The onion, jalapeño, and cilantro are chopped and diced finely so that there is even distribution of flavors.
  • I choose to add the tomato at the end to prevent bruising. I also remove the seeds.
  • Use up to 4g of sugar to balance out the flavors. If the razor clams are naturally sweet, add less sugar.
