National Deep Fried Clams Day

National Deep Fried Clams Day

Many people associate clams with rich, creamy clam soup or half-shells. However, there are many other ways to cook them. Although crab cakes are very popular, the best way to eat this tiny shellfish is by battering it and deep-frying it in oil. It will have a chewy texture and crispy crust. National Deep Fried Clams Day allows you to enjoy this delicious oceanic treat as often as you like, or can.

National Deep Fried Clams Day was established to celebrate the most popular fried clam creation, the clam strip. Thomas Soffron was the first to invent the clam strip. This Massachusetts-born son would go on to spread his love for clam strips across the country and around the globe. The perfect combination of shellfish and fish fries, the clam strip can be enjoyed in many ways. It is also a great way for people to enjoy clams, outside of clam soup.

The breading is what separates a fried clam recipe. It’s the combination of spices and herbs that creates that crispy, flaky crust that emerges from the fryer golden brown. The quality of the clams is the other important element. We recommend stopping by the nearest restaurant to try the delicious flavors of fried clams.

National Deep Fried Clams Day is a delicious deep-fried seafood feast. It’s common for seafood-loving areas to have a special version on their menu. After you have tried a few of the different flavors, you can make your own recipe! We recommend trying as many options as possible when dining out. Each one will have its own flavor and mix of ingredients that makes the clam strips stand out.
