Razor Clam Po Boy

Razor Clam Po Boy with Miso Mayonnaise and Cole Slaw.

Razor Clam Po Boy Recipe Sandwich

Sometimes being local to Seaside, Oregon makes change very difficult. I’ve eaten Po Boy sandwiches in New Orleans, Chattanooga, New york, and Portland Maine with everything from fried oysters and shrimp to lobster, but I still have not seen a local restaurant offer up a Razor Clam Po Boy. I will tell you this though, I started eating my grandmothers razor clams in Seaside, Oregon in 1964, and to this day there is only one thing better, that’s a Razor Clam Po Boy. I bet there will be a Seaside, Po Boy when this recipe gets out, it’s nothing less then fantastic!

Razor Clam

  • 4 to 6 – Medium to Large (follow the recipe above for Fried Razor Clams)

Miso Mayonnaise

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoon white or red miso
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 squeeze fresh lime juice
In a small bowl, add the mayonnaise, miso, and limejuice, mix until smooth. Check and season to taste. If you prefer a little heat, add a squirt of Sriracha Sauce, or Chili Paste. Taste and adjust seasonings (Miso is very salty, but I like two tablespoons). Keep Miso Mayonnaise covered in refrigerator and it will last as long as Mayonnaise (up to a year).

Cole Slaw

  • 4 cups finely diced cabbage (about 1/2 head)
  • 1/8 cup diced carrots (finely)
  • 2 tablespoons minced onions
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sweet asian vinegar
Finely dice cabbage and carrots, add to large bowl and stir in minced onions. Prepare the dressing, add all ingredients to small bowl and mix until smooth and creamy. Pour over Slaw and mix thoroughly. Cover bowl and refrigerate several hours or overnight before serving.

4 French Sandwich Rolls

Preheat the oven to a low broil. Butter the rolls and place on a baking sheet. Broil until golden, 2 to 3 minutes, and remove from oven and let sit.

Assembling the Sandwich

Liberally spread Miso Mayonnaise on both sides of the rolls. Add the Razor Clam and Cole Slaw, serve immediately.
