Clams, Sea Clam Pie (Frozen, Bake At Home, Serves 3-4 people)
The filling is made from freshly shucked, locally (Cape Cod) sourced sea clams, also known as surf clams or hen clams. The shells of these large clams are often found along beaches. These clams make for great chowders, stuffed clams, and are the origin of clam strips. Sea clams are plentiful, grow big, mature quickly, and are sustainably harvested.
All the goodness of a rich, hearty clam chowder, nestled in a flaky, buttery crust. Cooking time is about 70 minutes at 350F. As it cooks the crust puffs up and smells of buttery pastry and stuffed clams. Do your best to fight the urge to cut into the pie immediately and let it cool for at least 10 minutes.
