Some Common Questions About Instant Pot Clams

How Do You Store Leftover Cooked Clams?

If you have any clams leftover, place them into an airtight container and place them into the refrigerator. They will last about 3 to 5 days. 

You can not freeze cooked clams with great results; they will become waterlogged and rubbery upon thawing. 

What To Serve Clams With?

Clams are a great versatile dish that can be served in several ways. Some of my favorites are with a bowl of pasta or a salad. 

Any great side dishes that will go well with clams are potato salad, macaroni salad, or a simple garden salad.
