Razor clams with tomato and ginger

This recipe was created by “The Foodpairing® Company” based on the taste profile of Scotch. It is perfect for this red beer with a scent of spices, caramel and some light fruity notes. It stands out from traditional Scotch ales as it offers a fine woody scent reminiscent of hazelnut.

  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • White wine
  • Tomatoes: 30gms, diced
  • Candied ginger
  • Chives, finely chopped
  • 1 Lemon
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • Soy sauce, to taste


  • Step 1: Fill a pan with a little water and bring to a boil. Make a longitudinal incision in the razors and put them forten seconds in boiling water. Remove the meat from the shells and remove the entrails. Set the shells aside for serving. Cut the flesh into cubes
