Now you can easily pretend you’re at the seashore all year long by making this traditional New England seafood easy Clam Pie recipe to serve on the patio or under the gazebo on a hot summer night.
As a life-long native of New England, summer is synonymous with seafood, lobster and clams in particular. Whenever we head to the shore, I usually order clams from our favorite clam shacks or waterfront restaurants.
As we’re in the middle of a heat wave here on the East Coast, recently my youngest daughter and her friend headed to Misquamicut Beach Rhode Island for a day of sun and fun. Misquamicut Beach is just over the border from Connecticut in Westerly, Rhode Island. As it’s directly on Block Island Sound, the waves are huge and if you’re athletic enough, body surfing is a favorite past time. There’s plenty of things to do in Misquamicut for the whole family – there’s restaurants, souvenir shops, music, and nightlife to enjoy.
Traditional New England Food Seafood
I asked my daughter to please think of me if she was going to be enjoying some traditional authentic Rhode Island Clam Chowder (it’s clear broth), clam fritters, Littleneck clams, clams on the half shell or fried clams for lunch!
I like to collect cookbooks, and here’s a favorite easy seafood pie recipe for Clam Pie from a cookbook that I’ve had since before I got married. You can even substitute picked Lobster meat if you prefer.
Easy clean-up with my handmade crochet Dishcloths from Moomettes Crochet Shop!
Even if you don’t live by the ocean, you can still find wonderful fresh seafood in local fish markets. It doesn’t have to be summer to enjoy fresh fish dishes, you can serve up this clam pie recipe on your holiday buffet table too!
