Mom's Super Bowl Clam Dip.
Guac, salsa, queso, sure, these dips rock, but my Mom makes a damn tasty clam dip that's a little less mainstream. "It's usually for company, or in the fall," she explained. "I make it almost always around the holidays. It's great for New Year's because it counts in the Feast of the Seven Fishes. It's a party food."She's been making this clam dip for 20 years, and she said it's something, "people always, always like. It's a Super Bowl food." Twenty years of people enjoying something is a pretty good track record. To me, this is one of those perfect examples of tradition versus technique. Reviewing the recipe, I'd say, given classical training, I'd hold back the clams 'til the garlic and onions were translucent. But, know what? As my Pop says, "I've never heard anyone complain about that."He's right. This dip is great on thin crackers that don't take up room in your stomach, so you can eat more clam dip. We like Waterthins' Fine Wafer Crackers or 34° Crispbread. So, where did the recipe come from? It's one of those legacy recipes Mom said probably came from something she read, but until now has just been written on an index card in a plastic red box in the kitchen. Now you can use it too. Thanks, Mom.Click here to see Recipe SWAT Team: Dips.

Baked Clams Oreganata
This classic clam dish is fantastic as a passed hors d'oeuvre for a party. Use the freshest clams you can find; the shells should be tightly shut, and any that are open should shut when tapped on a work surface. Some people like to add chopped garlic and red pepper flakes; I like to let the flavor of oregano shine on its own, but feel free to modify to suit your taste.

Thai-Inspired Steamer Clams
My favorite clams are steamer clams, a delicacy of New England, and in my opinion, this is one of the best ways to prepare them — simply steamed with a delicious broth flavored with garlic, ginger, coconut milk, and cilantro. The broth is so good you'll want to sop up every last bit with a crusty piece of French bread or a bowl of steamed rice. Click here to see Sensational Summer Clam Recipes.

Rhode Island: Rhode Island Clam Chowder
In New England, there is a tale of two chowders, while New England’s thick and creamy chowder is perhaps more well-known, another style clear chowder is famous in Rhode Island. Unlike New England or Boston clam chowder, the base of this soup is clear with a splash of cream added just before serving.

Sweet Corn and Clam Chowder
This signature chowder has become very popular at Fire. We serve it with wild Alaskan halibut, manila clams, and sautéed spinach; it is also delicious with sautéed diver scallops. The result is a rich, thick, and spicy chowder with a great kick!— Douglas Katz, executive chef-owner at Fire Food and Drink, Cleveland, OHClick here to see Corn for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Dessert.

Clams with White Wine, Bacon, Garlic, and Parsley
Clams are one of the easiest foods to prepare. All you need to do is toss them in a pot with a little moisture, put the lid on until they open up, and enjoy. This recipe teams the clams with flavors that complement them nicely: white wine, garlic, and bacon. This recipe will yield a bit more broth than you might be expecting — all the better to sop up with some crusty bread.  Click here to see Sensational Summer Clam Recipes.
