Recipe for canned clams?

akimaii | Mar 10, 201408:43 AM     29

I'm trying to get more iron in my diet, and clams are at the top of the list. Thing is, I hate the texture of most seafood, especially clams. It feels like I'm eating a slug.

That said, I don't mind the taste. I have been known to drain the liquid from a can of clams and use that in place of the clams for pasta dishes.

Is there a way I can incorporate clams into my diet that disguises the texture? What if I sauteed canned clams in butter and garlic and then pureed them? Would that be terrible?
