Clam Cakes

I’ve never made these with clams before and these came out quite tasty.  Hubby gave them a thumbs up, so I’ll definitely be doing these again!  This recipe is OK for Induction.  These little charmers contain 800% of the recommended daily requirement of Vitamin B12.  Clams are just about the richest source of B12, in fact.  The moral of this story is “EAT MORE CLAMS!!”

2  six-oz. cans of clams, drained

½ c. parsley chopped

¼ tsp. onion powder

½ tsp. my Seafood Spice Blend

1 T. mayonnaise

1 clove garlic, minced

5-6 drops Tobasco

1 egg, beaten

3 T. Parmesan cheese, grated

1 Revo Roll broken into very small pieces(or 1/2 c. crushed pork rinds)

oil of your choice for frying (about 2-4 T.)

DIRECTIONS:  Open and drain liquid off clams (freeze juice to add to your next seafood chowder).  This will yield about 6 oz. of clam solids.  Add all other ingredients but the oil and stir well.    Heat oil in non-stick skillet over high heat.  Using a soup spoon, dip out into oil, making five 3″ cakes, pressing them into a circle with the back of the spoon.  Wait until fully browned on the first side before attempting to flip these over.  This should prevent them from breaking apart on you.  When browned nicely on both sides, remove to serving platter.  Nice with a salad or green veggie of your choice.

  1. My husband and daughter both went clamming and brought their limit of clams home. I made this dish and it was deliciousWe all gave it two thumbs up. Thank you.


    • I love clams in any shape or form. I had never had anything like this before and thought if you cn make patties out of crab, tuna and fish, why not clams? I’ll bet they were ever so much better with fresh clams. We used to buy clams by the bushel when I lived in Hampton, VA in high school. Love clams with just butter and saltines. Mmmmm. Doesn’t get much better! I’m so glad you liked this recipe!
