      Molly these are so good with all my years of cooking I have never made fritters using clams, I added in 1 teaspoon fresh garlic, used seasoned salt and also added in some cayenne peper, made for DS's lunch today and was thoroughly enjoyed, thanks so much for sharing this winner!

      These are so good. I made half of the recipe I had a can of whole baby clams and minced them very small. I deep fried them in small batches and they puffed up nicely and had very good flavor. I will be making these again. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
