When we think of clams, it brings to mind one thing: clam chowder. Whether you like it New England style or Manhattan, chowder's the way most people eat their clams. And while we love clam chowder just as much as the next person, there are so many other ways to eat clams -- steamed or curried to name just a few.
If you've never made clam recipes at home before, the thought of cleaning them out might make you nervous. But that's actually the easy part, we promise. The most challenging step in the making of clams is being sure you cook enough -- because they'll go really fast.
