  4. I don't really care for the pisser clams, but a big bowl of steamed little necks with butter and lemon and I am about as happy as I get.

  5. Whole bellied fried clams with a side of tartar sauce. Clam strips do not count. Steamers steamed in salt water with a side of drawn butter. Little necks eaten raw with a squeeze of lemon and a dash of tobasco. Cherry Stone clams in white wine and butter served like mussels. Anything larger I like in a a chowder or stuffed. Now I am hungry, so I guess I should go clamming.

  6. Fried or steamed. The only way to do steamers right is to steam them in beer with onion.

  7. Left in the Ocean ;)

    Actually, I don't mind raw surf clam sushi, but otherwise don't eat shellfish that much.

    In my defense, I grew up (and live) inland, where fresh seafood was a rarity.
    However, whenever I visit coastal areas, I make an effort to try some of the local catch. I'll be visiting the in-laws in Western Australia this November, and am already looking forward to it.

  8. Clams - Raw (Matunuck Oyster Bar in Jerusalem, RI are hands down the best I've ever had), whole bellied fried, clam cake, stuffies... Let me count the ways to consume them.
    Mussels - Eh... Steamed in champagne is probably my favorite.

  10. I enjoyed some mussels last night dressed in garlic, white wine, and a few sprigs of thyme with a plate of warm garlic naan and a cold glass of French rose. Perfect light dinner on a humid southern night :)

  11. On someone else's plate.

    I'm allergic.

    Which was hell as a child growing up on the coast of Maine.

  12. I will eat shellfish prepared any way, but best mussels in all the land are at The Barnacle in Marblehead - steamed in white wine and honey. So damn good!
