About Greenland Sashimi Cockles 刺身白玉贝

The fact that it spans both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, from Greenland and all the way to Washington, means that it thrives in a variety of marine environments. This diverse habitat may contribute to its distinct taste and texture.

While many species of mollusks are available for consumption, not all are suitable for raw preparations like sashimi. The introduction of Greenland cockle as a sashimi option adds a fresh choice for aficionados and can be a gourmet experience different from the more commonly available sashimi varieties.

Mollusks in general are known to be rich in proteins, vitamins, and minerals, with a low fat content. The Greenland cockle, especially if consumed raw, may retain more of these nutrients, making it a healthier choice compared to some other seafood options.

Chef's Recipe: Sashimi Cockles

For sashimi-grade white abalone, we recommend pairing it with simple wasabi or Japanese soy sauce. Alternatively, you can also enjoy it with vinegared rice, wrapped in seaweed for added texture. For those craving richer flavours, we suggest trying it in a seafood broth, inspired by traditional seafood hot pot recipes.

Common FAQs

What does "Sashimi Grade" mean?

"Sashimi grade" refers to the quality of seafood that is suitable for raw consumption, particularly for dishes like sashimi and sushi.
It indicates that the fish or seafood has been carefully handled, processed, and stored to meet high safety and quality standards for raw consumption.
Sashimi-grade seafood is typically very fresh, free from any parasites or contaminants, and has a clean, delicate flavor and texture that is ideal for eating raw.

What are the differences between Cockle Clams and Surf Clams?

Cockles, belonging to the Cardiidae family, are smaller with a rounded shell and offer a sweet, slightly briny flavor with a tender, chewy texture.
They inhabit intertidal areas like sandy beaches and mudflats. On the other hand, surf clams, part of the Mactridae family, are larger with an elongated, triangular shell and provide a mild, sweet flavor with a firmer, meatier texture.
They are found in sandy ocean bottoms in shallow coastal waters. Both are suitable for sushi dishes.

How should I defrost it to ensure the best taste?

Firstly, it's important to thaw them slowly in the refrigerator rather than using methods like microwaving or running under hot water, which can result in uneven thawing and potentially compromise the texture and flavor.
It would take up to 12 hours in the fridge to defrost. Once thawed, it's advisable to use them promptly to maintain freshness and quality.
