Clam Fritters Recipe

We had clam fritters every time we went to Rhode Island. I looked for a recipe and finally found this one. Now we have them whenever we want.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:7 servings

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 can (6-1/2 ounces) minced clams
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1/3 cup diced onion
  • Oil for deep-fat frying
  • Tartar sauce and/or lemon wedges, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper; set aside. Drain clams, reserving 2 tablespoons juice; set clams aside. In a small bowl, beat the egg, milk and reserved clam juice; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Add the clams and onion.
  • 2. In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Drop batter by tablespoonfuls into oil. Fry for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown, turning occasionally. Drain on paper towels. Serve fritters with tartar sauce and/or lemon wedges if desired. Yield: 14-16 fritters.
