Course Side Dish


  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 2 cans minced clams
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 onion chopped fine
  • 1 clove of garlic chopped fine
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1 tsp. parsley
  • ¾ tsp. crushed red pepper to taste, 1/4 chopped green pepper.


  • Simmer 1 tsp. lemon juice and 2 cans of minced clams for 15 min. Melt butter.
  • Saute: onion, clove of garlic, oregano, parsley, crushed red pepper (to taste), green pepper.
  • Put all ingredients together in a casserole dish (will be watery). Mix together with 1/2 cup bread crumbs. Put grated cheddar cheese on top. Sprinkle a little paprika on top.
  • Bake in uncovered dish for about 20 minutes. A shallow dish is better.
  • You can freeze before or after, to be used later. Serve with crackers or in clam shells.


A double recipe will fill a large casserole dish. Use a smaller dish for a single recipe.
