Clams Casino

This is another old school dish your parents might have ordered on a night out on town. You still might find it in that steakhouse at the beach where the locals go, you know the one with the dark wood panelIng and the bad lighting. Well it’s still is a classic and still tasty if you remember to clean the clams and use quality ingredients from trusted sources like Crosby’s Crabs and Happy Family Ranch. I hope you like it.
