Shirley's Baked Clam Casserole

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Lindas Busy Kitchen

This is a great basic recipe to cook any of your favorite seafoods... I love using the lobster, langastanos, shrimp and haddock the BEST! Being from New England, my mom loved her seafood, and we had this YUMMY dish quite often growning up, with all these variations! You can easily double or triple the recipe.

I loved this dish Linda. It was quick and easy to make. What a lovely decadent treat. Rich and delicious. I used salted saltenes as I was out of ritz crackers. It was a worthy substitute. Thanks so much for sharing. I will be making this again, trying other shell fish. Made for May pool party / 10 :)
