How do you prepare Manila clams?
Soak your clams for 20 minutes in fresh water just before cooking. As the clams breathe they filter water. When the fresh water is filtered, the clam pushes salt water and sand out of their shells. After 20 minutes, the clams will have cleaned themselves of much of the salt and sand they have collected.

How do you steam Manila clams?
Add the clams and butter, cover the pot and reduce the heat so the liquid gently steams. Steam the clams until they have opened, 2 to 3 minutes, then sprinkle over the parsley and season to taste with salt and pepper. Discard any clams that do not open. Serve hot with toasted crusty bread.
Do I need to soak clams before cooking?

Do clams have poop in them?
It was probably poop. Clams syphon very small organisms off the sea floor. Inevitably they get some sand in with their food and if they aren’t left to soak in clean water for a time they can’t pass it out. Your clam may have been digesting something or may have picked up something it didn’t.
How do you know clams are cooked?
