These are the best clams I have ever had, that I made at home. They are just like the clam shacks in ME, NH, CT and MASS. We had with some french fries, coleslaw and rolls, just like at the shacks and it brought us to New England once again, with all the fresh flavors these clams had! My DH and I were on cloud 9 eating every bite. Oh what a feast! Thanks Linda!
I love fried clams and being on the west coast really makes it hard to find good ones in the restaurants. I joined Zaar in hopes that I could find a good recipe for fried clams. Looks like I came to the right place, because I made these last night to share with a friend and we pigged out on these until we thought we were gonna burst! Such an excellent recipe Linda and so simple, and here I was thinking it was going to be like rocket science! The clams were tender and the batter was light, and not heavily breaded like I have had them other places. We had with tarter sauce and ketchup and I really can't tell you which tasted better they both were such great condiments on these clams. These are truly "New England" style clams all the way and just like I had at the Clam Shack! Kudos to you and my friend thanks you too!
I like to make my own fried clams, since they are so expensive in the restaurants. I made this recipe for Fried Clams and also Linda's recipe for Shirley's Fried Scallops, and they were both outstanding. They came out crispy, flavorful, and downright addicting! Both these recipes are restaurant quality, yet cheap enough to have for a treat once in awhile at home. Thank you so much for sharing these with us Linda. My husband is one very happy man now that I can make him these recipes!
