7 Clam Recipes to Enjoy this Summer

Enjoy any one of these clam recipes this summer at your backyard BBQs or Sunday dinners!

Last week during my stay in Mexico, I enjoyed so many delicious seafood dishes! We stopped at a number of restaurants along the way, and I even shared my favorite restaurants in Puerto PeƱasco on the blog. There was a variety of shrimp, mussels, flounder, and clam. Once I returned home, I started missing out on all of the fresh seafood but then I remembered I have a few more travels this summer coming up that bring me close to the ocean (where I can indulge myself in even more fresh seafood!) 

Even though I won't be around fresh seafood for most of the summer (darn you, desert!) I still enjoy looking at all of the decadent and savory clam recipes on Pinterest--which got me thinking, "why don't I share some clam recipes on the blog to get inspired for summer seafood?" Today, I'm sharing 7 clam recipes from some of my favorite food bloggers (including this classic cioppino recipe shown above from The Hungry Blue Bird blog--check out her recipe here!)
