The razor clam (Ensis ensis) is a bivalve characterised by its long, arched valves. It lives in shallow waters, burying itself vertically in the sand and leaving a characteristic marking on the surface, in the shape of an eight.
It feeds off plankton, which it absorbs through its gills. It is usually caught by divers.”
Frinsa razor clams are caught in the Galician Estuaries. After selecting the finest specimens, they are subjected to a cleaning process to eliminate the sand. Then their hepatopancreas is removed, to enhance the flavour of the meat and they are packed by hand.
