    Wow, this was amazing. Combining zucchini with clams a great tasty idea. I did adjust the recipe because I didn't have some of the ingredients on hand. I used only 3 eggs and used scallions instead of onions. Also, my zucchini was shredded not diced because I had extra shredded zucchini from zucchini bread I was baking. And I used half a cup of clam juice with half a cup of milk. Sorry, I know these changes might affect the results so I plan to make this exactly next time. I just had to say thank you for a great recipe. UPDATE: yep, made it again this week and this time followed the recipe to a "T" (well, almost, I still had to use shredded zucchini because husband hates zucchini so I have to make it as invincible as possible) but boy, was it good. I made this twice in one week so I think that speaks volumes. Thank you for sharing this recipe.  -  16 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Living as far inland as I do, razor clams aren't something I've ever seen. I used canned clams, drained, instead. I felt these needed a little extra seasoning. I may try these again with my homemade seasoned bread crumbs and some extra garlic. My batter was extremely thin, so I did add extra bread crumbs and flour (and salt and pepper) to make them more of a drop consistency. Thanks for a tasty recipe!  -  04 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
