抓海鲜季开始咯!一起去抓大蛏子

大蛏子(Razor Clam)是西雅图地区的海鲜名产之一。捕捉大蛏子既可以吃到新鲜的野生海鲜又可以享受挖捕的乐趣,是当地很多家庭乐此不疲的春季户外活动。进入抓捕季,今天小编就来教教你,如何抓住大蛏子。

clamming注意事项:
大蛏子的抓捕时间管理非常严格。华州规定,必须在long beach、twin harbors等几个制定地点,而且在政府对海域检测确定合格后进行。此外,每个人限制捕捉15只大蛏子,且各人捕捉到的要分开装在不同容器里,方便检查。

必备工具:
执照:挖大蛏子需要的执照可在政府官网购买,一些挖海鲜的热门地点也设有执照购买点。购买后会受到一封电邮的临时执照,几天后正式的执照就会寄送到家里啦。如果时间紧迫,也可在Fred Meyer、Big 5等大型杂货商店内购买。网站:https://fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov/

电筒:因为挖大蛏子大多在退潮前后进行,虽然现在已经进入夏令时,但可能挖完收拾东西时已经天气渐晚。所以小编建议您还是随身携带电筒、头灯等照明物为好。

Clam Gun:这可是挖大蛏子的利器。大约24元左右。小编建议您在出发前上网搜索一下视频,一看便学会啦。colorguns

手套:最好是包裹整支手臂的长手套。因为时常需要把手伸进洞里掏大蛏子。而且有事大蛏子会被Clam Gun碾碎,留下很多锋利的碎片,直接用手可能会被划破。手套价格10到30元不等。
雨靴:海滩上行走,怎么能没有一双塑料胶鞋呢。不仅有很多泥沙,而且很容易被排过来的海浪灌了一脚的冰冷海水。
塑料桶:保存你的战利品的最好方式莫过于装满海水的塑料桶啦。当然,如果你速度够快的话,也可以用黑色的网兜代替。
雨衣:西雅图地区下雨很多,为了不被雨水骚扰,影响了行程,户外活动带件雨衣可是必备的。此外,海边风大水汽重,穿上雨衣也可以很好的保暖。
防晒:不要低估了海边的阳光,爱白爱美的人士记得防晒哦。
帽子:海边风大,尤其是清晨日出前。头部是人体热量流失最快的地方。带上一顶毛绒帽可以有效的保暖哦。

Recipe for Razor Clam Linguine:

1 1/2 cups razor clams, cut into 1/2-inch pieces0315cooksadventuresrecipe_01

10 ounces linguine

1/4 cup butter

1/4 cup olive oil

1 cup onion, diced

4-5 cloves garlic, minced

1 cup white wine

2 cups tomatoes, diced

1 Tbsp. oregano, chopped (optional)

1 cup parsley, chopped

2 Tbsp. basil, chopped (optional)

saffron or red pepper flakes (optional)

1/3 cup Parmesan, grated

  1. In a large saucepan, sweat the onions and garlic over medium heat in the butter and olive oil. Add wine (I add several strands of saffron to the wine half an hour beforehand) and cook for a few minutes, then add tomatoes and oregano and simmer 10–15 minutes. If sauce gets too thick, add a splash of water.
  2. If using fresh pasta, add the razor clams to sauce when putting pasta into boiling water; if pasta is dried, wait until it is half-cooked and then add clams to sauce. The razors only need a few minutes of cooking.
  3. Drain and toss pasta in a large bowl with sauce, parsley and any other herbs. Serve with Parmesan.
