If you freeze LIVE clams don't you kill them? Clams should never be eaten if UNCOOKED and dead? I have only seen frozen COOKED clams - such as casino, stuffed, fried, soups or as an ingredient in other dishes etc.

The frozen mussels I've seen all come in their shells. Which has me wondering how or why they opened.

I worked at a pizzaria and it was my job once a week to take a case of frozen mussels and portion them into tins for service wheather eat in or take out. They were stacked and put in the walk in, when needed sauce was added and heated in the pizza oven for service as a side or over pasta. They have been steamed and shells are just "popped" open hinge still intact and quick frozen. But in transit they sometimes come out of the shell. I had to be sure there was a mussel in each shell. Unopened shells were tossed. Some people got lucky because when I got to the bottom of the case there was always mussels missing shells so some tins got extra stray mussels. LOL

You can't eat dead clams they can kill you. If you freeze the clam to death it's still dead?
You have never eaten frozen fried clams or casino/baked or stuffed clams? Frozen mushrooms with a seafood filling? Those are ALL pre cooked.

To each their own I guess, but we like our steamed then frozen clams. Especially, when we get a 200 count bag because of the price. Way too many to eat at one time. They are frozen in the steaming liquid and used over pasta.
