Meaty. These are meaty razor shell clams in brine (navajas al natural), packed in Galicia in northwest Spain. The name allegedly alludes to the shell’s shape being similar to an old-fashioned straight razor, which doesn’t do anything to describe how delicious they are, but makes sense. Try warming them with garlic and smoked paprika for an excellent appetizer.
The clams are harvested from the beaches of Chile and brought to Spain to be prepared and packed by hand in the traditional method. These imported clams are what you will commonly find in the tapas bars of Spain as product derived from the coast there is in limited supply and demands exorbitant prices.
