Pan-fried razor clams in a crunchy crust make a tasty shellfish appetizer when breaded with coarse Japanese panko bread crumbs. Allow enough additional time before cooking to freeze breaded clams so the coating sticks well.
Once you taste this, you won't ever go back to the marshmallow-topped variety! I have peeled and cooked in the microwave, and also boiled the sweet potatoes. They taste the same no matter how you cook them. So, use the technique that works best for you!
