Clam Cakes 😋

When it comes to summer food in Rhode Island, it’s all about the mussel cakes, and no one makes mussel cakes bigger than a tennis ball. Summer is the perfect time to enjoy the best mussel cakes and chops, as well as all sorts of other treats. But every true Rhode Island islander has his or her own favourite spots to get good shell-cake cubes, whether in Providence, Pawtucket, or any of the other sacred islands in southern Rhode Island known to locals as South County. These cakes are served in local restaurants in Newport and other South County towns, but also in other parts of South Providence and Providence. Sources: 4, 5, 7

Some clam cakes are scooped balls of fried dough, while others are littered with small bulges that protrude and are affectionately referred to by Clamarati as nubbin. We call them doughnuts here, and they are a combination of two things: a thick, crispy, fried dough and a thin, crispy shell cake cube. Sources: 3

I generally prefer fried clams, although they are more expensive and much more calorific, but I would never give up the occasional clam pie. After all, the clam is ground anyway, and while Iggy’s clam pies are small and round with nubbin, I’d do the same with a bit of sweet quahogbeed surf clam. Inside is a piece of shell in a pink tone, which, as I learned later, is the same colour as the shell of a shell. It’s certainly not the glorious quahoga of my youth, so I wouldn’t do it again. Sources: 3, 9, 10

I even had a cup of chowder and three clam pies with it and I enjoyed it with freshly made chowders and clams. My favourite scampi cake will be on the table in the next few weeks, along with some of my favourite noodles and pastries and a few other favourite dishes. Sources: 0, 7, 9, 12

This mussel cake is hard to make if you don’t mind frying something in boiling, deep fat, but you don’t need it. The best mussel cakes are those with a little oil and a few tablespoons of butter, the rest is reserved for seafood isotto or pasta. Sources: 11, 13

The mussels in New England are quahog (hard mussels), but they can also be made with other mussels such as cockles or vongoles. It is said that in Narragansett Bay, near Newport, the shell is chopped rather than chopped. This recipe makes freshly ground clams, although they would still be good with finely chopped clams. When you make the shell cake at home, add chopped shallots to the batter and top it off with a pinch of sea salt. Sources: 4, 10, 12, 13

In the shape, Aunt Carrie’s clam pies are always loaded with lots of shells on the outside, but inside they are loaded. If you use raw mussels to make doughnuts, mussels or doughnuts, pop the shell and scrape out the raw mussel and place in the microwave for a few seconds. Mix the chopped clams with the flour, baking powder, salt and a pinch of sea salt in a small bowl. Sources: 1, 5, 13

Crab cakes are a pretty common menu item, but as much as crab cakes, there’s so much more to them. If you eat seafood while traveling, you’ll see mussels and oyster pie everywhere. While most people enjoy mussel pie and chops regardless of the season, they belong together in a bowl. Sources: 8, 10, 12

Even the Southern Mass Clam Cakes are native to Rhode Island, but in some regions they have not yet fully spread. I have met them in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and even in the New England region of the United States. On Rhode Island, we use the Rhode Island in ClAM Cake and use it as the base for Rhode Islanders oyster cake and custard. Sources: 9, 12

The specialties of the state, including mussels and fillings, can be found at roadside stalls that have been run from family to family for generations. Sources: 6

The mussel cakes are too perfectly round with a few nubbins and contain the pink colour of the mussels. They are salty like no other and are first baked crispy before being fried from the inside. They come in a fatty – stained – box of deep-fried clams and a bowl of clams sauce. In some parts of this state, shellfish huts and seafood restaurants offer a variety of different types of seafood such as oysters, mussels, shrimp, crabs and crabs, as well as a wide variety of other seafood. Sources: 3, 6, 11

Some people think of mussels as a poor mana dish because the mussels are determined by the dough, but some South County residents, including me, say the only way to eat mussels is simple. I think they are like a chopped mussel, with the steam that rises from the first bite and the crunchy texture of the crust. Sources: 2, 9, 12
