growing up, fried clams were a staple on the menu...not anymore, the food nazi's thru the years- "deep fried" means bad, bad bad " one of my fav all time meals got pink slimed.

so, now i bring a picture, ask the server to bring to chef, to see if they can make some- even include a recipe on the back.
the independent (owned) seafood restaurants will sometimes, go out of there way and make some,,,the chain restaurants,,,,forget it...


and now i make some myself- i may do it some night this week, in my fry-daddy .
If you search for fried clams on CD, you will find the Yarmouth ME fried clam recipe, posted by maineah. Going to the clam fest is on my bucket list. I can't get shucked clams here, but I've made them with oysters.

There is nothing wrong with the occasional deep fried food. A good fish fry is one of the world's greatest meals. Thank goodness for Nexium.

I should have said in my first post I don't eat fried fish everyday only once every two weeks. My heart doctor said eating alot of fried foods are not good for heart or veins.

I generally don't like fish or seafood, mostly because what I can get where I live tastes 'dirty' to me.

That changes on those rare occasions when I get back home, to the central Gulf Coast. Deep-fried catfish with fresh cole slaw and hush-puppies is one dish that I over-eat; another is deep-fried crab claws. Fresh flounder baked or fried, blackened red snapper, shrimp cooked dang near any way, but no oysters - could never acquire a taste for 'em.

I'll be going back in early June for about 10 days -- already got my 'fat pants' washed & pressed and ready to take with me!

You should've been here earlier--that's exactly what we had for supper tonight! I don't make it very often, since cleaning the deep fryer is a pita. I'm lucky it disassembles pretty easily (Waring Pro).

The main reason I like Cape Cod is being able to order a heaping platter of fried calamari. But, at least at home there are plenty of opportunities for fried fish and seafood prepared other ways. In England, I often had fish and chips wrapped in newspaper. That's when I discovered chips were French fries. LOL

Fried or grilled.

I don't care for "baked" anything.

In my world, that's the diet they put fat guys on with no choice.
