    Nasty? Perish the thought! They are a rare and delicate… nay, precious… gift from the bosom of the ocean to us mere mortals on the shore.

    Dietary issues aside, I don't think that I'd eat something whose seeming raison d'etre is filtering sea water for nutrients.

    I do love them raw but I especially love them done Rockefeller style.

  5. Roger Owen Green says:

    Tasty enough, though I could take or leave 'em.

  6. Lord Chlorus says:

    The latter. I've watched others eat them with obvious delight; I can't even imagine a scenario in which I could try one.

    I did far, far too many dissections of clams and mussels as a grad student teaching assistant teaching Intro Bio to ever be able to eat anything like that.

    I start thinking about all the gonads and livers and what-not in the unfortunate little critter and get totally grossed out.

    Deep fried clam "strips," however, I am totally down with.
