For instance, this simple recipe for clam cakes. It involves two cups of clams, 1.5 cups of cracker crumbs, and two eggs. Easy peasy and delicious.
That said, clams are expensive and time-consuming to steam, shuck, and chop. (Yes, canned clams are an option, but they really don't taste much like fresh clams.)
So, today I bought fresh haddock for $4.99 per pound at Free Range Fish and Lobster on Commercial Street, intending to substitute fish for clams. (I also dropped a dollar in the Wharf Kitty Rescue Fund tin at the cash register counter. If you go, you should drop a dollar in the tin, too. Wharf kitties need love.)
