clam cakes? Definition?

wineaux73 | Mar 10, 2008 01:47 PM

I'm a recent New England inhabiter, and someone not from here asked me if I had tried and clam cakes as of yet. I must admit, I have not seen clam cakes on a menu since I've been here. Am I just going to places that don't serve this dish? Is it an authentic New England staple?

Or, I was thinking maybe he meant clam bellies. I'm feeling a little dense. Maybe I'm going to the wrong places for seafood.

When I hear clam cakes, I think of something like crab cakes: clams, tossed with herbs and bread crumbs (maybe some egg or other "binder" and then sauteed or fried in a pan. That is right up my alley, so, if anyone can recommend a place that sells 'em like that, I'm in!
