My friend gave me a can of razor clams. To me one of the best ways to consume it is by making it into a cold dish. Cold dish platter is popular in Asia, usually served during wedding banquets or when celebrating Chinese New Year. A regular Wedding banquet usually has a total of 10 courses. And this is normally served as the first course, kind of like an appetizer.
Recalling something my father did back in 2014 - it was a cold dish platter with bak kwa, abalone, spring roll, top shell and some fruits. To top it off, he made a sweet tangy sauce which the whole family loved. As I have limited supplies here in Sweden, I used the razor clams to go with this sweet tangy sauce.
