National Clams on the Half Shell Day - 2021-03-31
What is National Clams on the Half Shell Day?
National Clams on the Half Shell Day is March 31st, giving you a chance to celebrate one of the world’s most unique dishes. There are many varieties of clams that people eat on the half-shell. The most popular variety is the topneck, but you will find recipes using littlenecks and cherrystones as well. Each variety has a different size, so it's important to measure them accordingly. Topnecks tend to be two inches across. These succulent clams are enough for a bite-sized morsel of Atlantic saltwater goodness. The clam shell can be grilled, steamed, or even smoked. One of my favorite recipes with clams is Clam Casino. It is made with bacon and breadcrumbs, and is often served as an appetizer. This recipe comes from the Little Casino in Rhode Island. The story goes that the maître d'hôtel Julius Keller developed this dish with Mrs. Paran Stevens in 1917.
