Great job on the recipe. I grew up in RI and growing up I was a commercial shell fisherman (Quahoger for you New Englanders). I know a little something about RI clams!! I just made these clam cakes. PERFECT! We also put beer to wet our clam cake batter and fish and chip batter, but other than that, these are very authentic. Georges, Aunt Carries, The Cove in Mystic, and all those NE clam shacks would be proud. Great job.<br/><br/>Chowder Boy
Wonderful, nice light and authentic RI clam cake
You are the best! I live in Florida now but grew up in Narragansett. We always got hot clam cakes from George's whenever we visited Galilee. Man that brings back some memories. Thanks!
This recipe is pretty spot on. The only thing (and I could be wrong) that seems to be missing is the addition of corn meal/flour... I tried it both ways and, always, use some clam juice for the liquid. A little corn meal made a huge difference! That's the only reason I gave it 4 stars, instead of 5...
I can't wait to try this, and, yes, I do remember eating these at Captain Jack's with some chowda!
I made this for the first time tonight. I had never made clam cakes before. These came out perfect, and I mean PERFECT. I did change it up a little. I used buttermilk instead of milk (I made it myself). I used minced onions instead of onion flakes. I also made a double batch and used a whole pound of fresh clams. My family was impressed. My 14 year old does not eat seafood and she enjoyed them.
I know I'm dating myself but does anyone else remember the Point Judith Grill, Custy's and of course Captain Jack's.
I knew they went together before - apple pie and ice cream!
Oh I used to love Aunt Carries! Jelly
