How To: Clams

To Clean:  Scrub shells with brush under cold running water.  Cover clams with cold salted water (1/3 cup salt to 1 gal. water).  Let stand 5 min. to allow clams to cleanse themselves of sand.  Repeat 2-3 times.  Discard any opened cherrystones (hard shells).  Open steamer clams will have some constriction of neck or siphon when clam is touched (an indication they are alive).  Should keep alive in refrigerator 1-2 days.

On The Half Shell:  Allow 6 per person
Shuck and cut both muscles free from two halves of the shell.  Remove only one of the shells.  Place 6 half-shell clams on a bed of crushed ice in 6 shallow bowls or plated, with a container of cocktail sauce in center.  garnish with lemon wedges and watercress.

Steamed Clams:  Allow 20 clams per person
Place scrubbed clams in 1/2 inch of salted water.  Cover and steam just until clams open (6-10 min.).  Discard any clams that do not open.  Serve with melted butter and cups of seasoned broth (season cooking liquid with onion and celery salt, parsley flakes and pepper).

Smoked Salmon Appetizer

1 large pkg Philadelphia Cream Cheese

1 large sweet onion, finely minced

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp onion powder

8 oz smoked salmon or lox bits

Cut the onion into quarters and place into the bowl of a food processor. Process with a few pulses until it is evenly chopped but be careful not to liquefy. Break the cream cheese into 4-5 sections and add to the processor. Add the onion powder and garlic powder and process the mixture just until the onions are finely minced. Cut smoked salmon into strips just large enough to fit on club crackers. Spread the cream cheese mixture on the cracker and cover it with a strip of salmon.

Optional: Top with a sliver of onion or a sprinkle of onion powder. These can be made into bite-sized stuffed salmon rolls if you roll up the cream cheese mixture inside a small strip of salmon and place each one on a circular cracker
