"My clams are requested all the time. They are the perfect appetizer for any occasion and so easy to make. Definitely guaranteed to rival anything you get in a restaurant! Great to freeze and have as a quick snack anytime. (Note: if you don't have clam shells, form tin foil into clam shaped cups, and proceed as directed.)"

I really enjoyed this. Instead of using clam shells I put the mixture into a shallow casserole dish and baked it. I serve it in the casserole dish with small buttery crackers to scoop up the mixture. Also took the advice and didn't overcook the clams. Thank you!
I found that cooking the clams first made them rubbery and over done. I knew how over-cooking clams could turn out before hand too and I even tried to turn the heat to low before adding the clams and crab meat but they still were overcooked. I tried the recipe again with just cooking the onions first and only using part of the clam juice so it wouldn't need to be heated and it was a lot better.
I highly recommend adding the clams last so they don't get overcooked and rubbery. Otherwise, this really wasn't too bad, just the kind of thing I look for in seafood recipes. We threw in more spices and some homemade seafood seasoning for flavour, in addition to a couple drops of hot sauce. Very good.
I found this appetizer tasted fairly bland. Maybe because it doesn't tell you what to do with the minced garlic.
Any one know how to clean the clam shells before stuffing them.
These were easy and tasted just as good as any I've had. Nex time I wil make more so that I can freeze them. I wasn't able to find the clam shells but the crab ones worked just fine.
Very bland. I added lemon zest, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and it still fell short. I won't be making this again.
Over the past few years I have had a heck of a time finding clam shells, and I live in NEW ENGLAND! I think this is because every fish shop here uses the shells and makes thier own stuffed clams........anyhoo........cup cake liners make great "clam shells".
