Cooking time


We use the siphons for their texture and marinate in the fresh juice of 3-4 limes. Add the sauce to each bite or the entire bowl. The sauce is adapted from Chef Jean Paul Desmaison. Serve with tortilla chips or saltines.


  • Meat
  • 12 razor clams

  • Juice of 3-4 fresh limes

  • 2-3 ripe tomatoes, finely diced

  • 1 small red onion, finely diced

  • ½ bunch of cilantro, finely chopped

  • 1 serrano or jalapeno pepper, finely diced

  • 1 avocado, finely chopped

  • Sauce
  • ½ fresh lime

  • 1 garlic clove

  • ½ serrano pepper, finely diced

  • ¼ bunch of cilantro

  • ¼ small red onion, finely diced

  • ½ tsp salt

  • 3 tbsp soy sauce

  • 1 tsp of finely grated fresh ginger or ginger powder

  • 1½ tbsp mirin

  • ½ tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • ½ tbsp sesame oil

  • 1 tsp honey (optional, use if you want to sweeten)


  • Cover the meat completely for about two hours to “cook” the clams in the acidic juice.
  • Drain the juice and add a little fresh lime juice, tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, serrano peppers, and avocado (finely diced).
  • When ready to eat, combine all the ingredients of the sauce.
