I love fried clams. A lot. Maybe too much. My sisters will attest to this. Well, this is how they make fried clams in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, where I’ve been eating giant baskets of them since at least 1974. This recipe is so good you’ll want to head out to the clam flats ASAP.
Clam cakes? Yep, they’re a Rhode Island tradition. I eat them every time I go to Block Island. Think clam beignet, or a clam donut hole. They are sinfully good.
