Clam cakes are a summer tradition in Rhode Island. A ride to the shore will always necessitate a stop at George's or Aunt Carries for a dozen clam cakes and a pint of chowder!

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
