Traditional Stuffed Clams Casino.

Stuffed Clams Casino

Stuffed Clams are a long-time classic. Each one is served in a half clam shell for an eye-catching presentation. The stuffing inside is traditionally made with clam meat, celery, red and green bell peppers, onion, parsley and spices. Popularly served as an appetizer. To cook, simply heat in a preheated 350°F oven for 15-20 minutes. Here’s a cooking tip: add a blast of rich flavor by placing a slab of butter on top of the clams before heating in the oven.

Contains: Shellfish (clam), Wheat, Soy, Milk

History of the Clams Casino

While the true creator of the Stuffed Clams Casino remains a constant debate, the credit is often given to Julius Keller. Keller claims to have created this delicacy during his tenure at Rhode Island’s Narragansett Pier Casino. On the other hand, some choose to give credit the general population of Italian and Portuguese immigrants in Rhode Island. No matter which history you choose to believe, this seafood classic certainly found its roots in the tiny beach-front state of Rhode Island.
