I created this recipe after thinking about my two favorite fritter recipes. I decide to combine them into one.

Wow, this was amazing. Combining zucchini with clams a great tasty idea. I did adjust the recipe because I didn't have some of the ingredients on hand. I used only 3 eggs and used scallions instead of onions. Also, my zucchini was shredded not diced because I had extra shredded zucchini from zucchini bread I was baking. And I used half a cup of clam juice with half a cup of milk. Sorry, I know these changes might affect the results so I plan to make this exactly next time. I just had to say thank you for a great recipe. UPDATE: yep, made it again this week and this time followed the recipe to a "T" (well, almost, I still had to use shredded zucchini because husband hates zucchini so I have to make it as invincible as possible) but boy, was it good. I made this twice in one week so I think that speaks volumes. Thank you for sharing this recipe. Read More

Living as far inland as I do razor clams aren't something I've ever seen. I used canned clams drained instead. I felt these needed a little extra seasoning. I may try these again with my homemade seasoned bread crumbs and some extra garlic. My batter was extremely thin so I did add extra bread crumbs and flour (and salt and pepper) to make them more of a drop consistency. Thanks for a tasty recipe! Read More

I made this and it was excellent! I recalculated the the servings for our small family. The only thing I did add in addition was 2 teaspoons of chicken flavoring. I will definately make this again for my family. They all loved it. Read More

This was really easy to make. I used a full cup of surf clams from the beach ground up and chopped. The batter was a little loose so I tightened it up with more flour and bread crumbs. I shredded the zucchini in the food processor. Served with homemade zucchini relish tartar sauce this made a great lunch. Read More

I used little neck clams as we are land locked and razor clams were not available. As tiny as little necks are I made "fritters" of them with the batter and fried. They were delicious and all my guests thought so too! Read More

Delish! I used rolled oats (1/2 cup 1/8 cup) since I didn't have bread crums handy just pulsed them in the blender for 15 seconds added some Italian seasoning and then pulsed again for 5 more seconds. I also made a sauce for the fritters: plain yogurt salsa sriracha sauce minced garlic salt and pepper all mixed together to taste. Yum! My husband loved them! He's a big crab cake fan and he said it reminded him of those. Read More

I made these for dinner tonight. I used 1/4 cup of oil instead of 1 cup and it worked fine. I did not have fresh razor clams and used canned. Whole family enjoyed Read More
