This is the most fun you can have with your seafood. It started with the idea of a fun get-together clam bake then took off with a life of its own. This recipe is a general guide. Have fun, mix and match your favorite seafood. I would ask your fish monger what is fresh, and then decide what seafood to add. I've even added a whole octopus before. Serve with a nice white wine, turn on some music and have fun. Great outdoor meal.
Linguine with Clams
This is one of my favorite meals. This goes great with a salad and some garlic bread.
These clams are steamed in wine, butter, and herbs. When the clams are gone, dip Italian bread in the broth.
Maggie's Clams Casino
These are delicious Clams Casino that my girlfriend makes for me, with a few of my own refinements. Great for the game on Sunday.
Clams and Chourico
These clams are steamed in dark beer with chourico sausage and red onions for a full flavored meal.

Tim O'Toole's Famous Stuffed Quahogs
Classic stuffed quahog recipes used stale bread and lots of seasoning. But my grandmother would have appreciated the pre-seasoned stuffing adaptation in this modernized version.
Zuppa Di Pesce Fra Di Avolo
An Italian favorite, best with a nice red wine and Frank Sinatra playing in the background.
Panko-Breaded Fried Razor Clams
I grew up on the West Coast where these tasty little treats are found. You can vary the amount of ingredients used in the recipe according to the number of clams you have, but be sure to use real Parmesan cheese and only panko crumbs, not regular bread crumbs. Pound the necks with a meat tenderizer, or deep fry them, if desired. These are delicious!!!
