Original recipe yields 24 fritters

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Whisk the flour and baking powder together in a bowl; set aside.
  2. Beat the egg in a separate bowl until smooth. Stir in the minced clams and black pepper to taste. Stir in the flour to form a batter.
  3. Drop the fritters into the hot oil by the heaping tablespoonful. Fry until golden on both sides, about 1 minute per side. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate to serve.

These were delicious...where's the optional sixth star? The recipe says it serves 12 but I doubled the batch and four of us ate every last fritter. Please note: When it says "batter" it's more like a dough. I thought perhaps I'd misread the ingredients when I doubled the recipe. Then I wondered if the clams were supposed to be with their juice (canned). Regardless, I stirred in as much flour as I could and dumped the rest (next time I might use a bit less). My husband's a real clam snob (coming from the razor clam capital of "the world"). I used fresh, diced horse clams which are at the very bottom of the clam-eating world. He raved about the fritters. Who knew!? Hence a sixth star!
