Razor clams cook quick but look especially impressive, especially in this popular Spanish-style tapas preparation.Todd Coleman

Razor clams take well to quick-cooked preparations like this one, a popular order at Bar Pinotxo, a tapas counter in La Boqueria, Barcelona's covered market.

Pairing Note: Cava (a sparkling wine), like the bright Juve y Camps Reserva de la Familia 2005 ($15), is a natural partner for this dish.
