About the Product
Akagai (赤貝 / Ark shell)
Akagai goes by many names, including ark shell clam, red clam, or blood clam and sometimes “surf clam” ,though typically that term is used for hokkigai.
It is often presented in a beautiful flower pattern, highlighting the shading as the red darkens towards one end, and typically scored with shallow cuts by the chef to make it easier to chew as it can be slightly tough. This clam has a mild aroma and taste which slowly becomes more prominent as it is chewed. The flesh is soft and firm, and should be enjoyed slowly to allow the sweet flavors and aromas to be released during consumption .
