This is a super-delicious dish that can be enjoyed as a starter or a main course. Clam shells are stuffed with chorizo, onion, clam meat and stuffing, then baked to perfection.
To prepare in advance, you can wrap the prepared stuffed clams in foil to bake later. If you bake them wrapped in foil, they will have a softer texture than those baked uncovered.

I reviewed solely based on smell, I admit it...I can't wait to eat these! I'm Portuguese and grew up in Massachusetts, whenever I had a quahog it always had linguiça (a milder Portuguese sausage ) or chouriço. I was THRILLED to find this recipe. Will review on taste tomorrow. :-) - 12 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
A taste of New England! I scored some big cherrystones at the Pike Place Market in Seattle, used Spanish chorizo and cornbread stuffing mix. Fantastic! - 24 Sep 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
