  • 2 6.5 ounce cans chopped clams
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped chives
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons clam juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • Oil for frying
  1. In a large mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, Old Bay Seasoning, cayenne pepper, and salt and pepper. In a separate medium-sized bowl combine clams, clam juice, lemon juice, eggs, chopped chives, and milk. Pour the combined liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix well.
  2. In a large frying pan, heat 2 inches of oil until hot, then, working in batches, drop mixture by spoonfuls ( use less, if you want them bite-size). Fry until golden brown, turning once. Drain and keep warm in a 250*F oven while the remainder are frying.
