    Wild caught, lightly blanched.

    Harvested from the 3 to 5 metre surf zone, the Diamond Shell is naturally full of plump meat, yielding 28-35% meat to shell ratio.  The Diamond Shell clam has a beige coloured shell with a rich, deep coloured meat and white tongue. With a mild, sweet ocean flavour and a crisp texture, the Diamond Shell is great for a broad range of preparations – both raw and cooked.

    Taste Profile

    The Diamond Shell is characterised by its sweet, fresh sea spray aroma and clean ‘wild ocean’ flavour. When cooked, the clam exhibits a fresh, fragrant scent of seaweed, with a rich, buttery flavour and a discreet nutty aftertaste.

    Wild caught, lightly blanched.

    Harvested from the low tide zone, 2 to 4 metres, the Tua Tua has a smooth clean shell and 33% meat to shell ratio. The smooth low profile shell is cream to light moss in colour. It has a distinctive mild, sweet ‘ocean spray’ flavour and a rich, creamy texture. Well suited to both raw and cooked preparations, the Tua Tua is especially suited to dishes consisting of a full flavour. Highly regarded by the local Maori people as a culinary delight, it is superb eating.

    Taste Profile

    The Tua Tua exhibits a delicate, sweet aroma of fresh kelp and toasted nori. The flavour of the raw clam is lightly oceanic with clean citrus notes. Cooked, the clam has a range of savoury characteristics, reminiscent of lightly smoked fish and Japanese soy.
