Grilled razor clams with dandelion & black garlic butter
Dressing up the humble razor clam with foraged dandelion and black garlic. Perfect with mussels or oysters, as well.
  1. Place the butter, garlic, dandelion and parsley into a food processor. Blend until smooth. Check for seasoning.
  2. Spread the butter mixture over the flesh of each razor clam, cover with plastic and refrigerate until ready to cook. This can be done several hours before serving.
  3. Heat an oven grill to the highest setting and set the oven rack about 5 cm below the element.
  4. Lay the filled razor clams onto a baking tray, ensuring they are level to minimise the butter from melting and pouring out of the shells.
  5. Place the tray onto the oven rack and grill for approximately 4 minutes. Carefully remove the tray from the grill, scatter the parmesan over the clams, then return the tray to the grill for a further 1 minute.
  6. Serve immediately with your salad of choice.
