Stuffed Clams (Rhode Island Stuffies) Recipes

zackly | Aug 6, 202007:11 AM     5

I've been making the same basic stuffed clam recipe for ions. It's an attempt to replicate stuffed clams offered at a former Italian restaurant in Stamford, CT Sbaia's Open Door, that's been closed for many years. Their stuffed clams are legendary but I've never seen the recipe online. Today I steamed a dozen cherrystone clams (no quahogs available), chopped up onion, celery, garlic and raw chorizo in a food processor, sauteed this mixture with butter then added the clams also chopped in the FP, then added seasoned stuffing mix, some Ritz crackers, Old Bay, parsley. I'll brush with melted butter, lemon juice, then dust with paprika. Now I'm sure Sabia never heard of Chorizo so they probably used sweet Italian sausage or ground pork but I don't recall tasting any sausage seasoning or for that matter, any meat. The #1 problem with stuffed clams is way too much breadcrumbs so I'm at a loss what this restaurant might have used in their recipe. Do you have a stuffed clam recipe that you like? Nothing like a couple of "stuffies", some fresh local corn and a few beers outdoors in late summer.
