Using a sharp knife, cut along the top seam of the bamboo clam. The shell will open. Cut along the shell, between the meat and shell, to separate the flesh from the shell. Remove the meat from the shell. Cut and discard the dark intestinal tract. Set aside in a bowl. Once done place it in the fridge until you are ready to cook.
