Clam Fritters a Simple Holiday Treat!

 Sharing a simple but delicious addition to your holiday table.  Sean Hart, chef and owner of our very own Exmore Diner and Salt & Sand Family Restaurant passes along this recipe enjoyed by so many from A South You Never Ate, our Oct. 28 event that celebrated the foodways of the Eastern Shore.


Clam Fritters

1 pint chopped Seaside clams

1 large egg

4oz. finely chopped onions

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 squirts yellow mustard


Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Be careful not to overmix.


Over medium heat, melt butter(margarine will work) in a frying pan.


Spoon mixture into the pan and cook about 5 to 8 minutes until you see the fritter begin to rise. When tiny air pockets form, flip, cooking another 3 to 5 minutes.


Remove and place fritters on a paper towel. These are best served on plain white bread with a touch of mustard.
