Recipe by Barb in WNY

Another recipe to try soon. I found the 1 teaspoon garlic salt too salty. I'd cut it in half or substitute garlic powder. This is more of an appetizer than main dish.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain clams and reserve 3 tablespoons broth.
  2. Heat olive oil in a small frying pan. Sauté onion, parsley, oregano, and the 1/4 cup cracker crumbs for 2 minutes, or until onion is golden. Remove from heat and mix with clams, the 3 tablespoons clam broth, and garlic salt. Spoon into a dozen clam shells or aluminum shells.
  3. Sprinkle lightly with a mixture made of 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese and 2 tablespoons cracker crumbs.
  4. On a baking sheet, bake in a 375°F oven for 25 minutes, or until crusty on top.
