New England Clam Bake

Even if you don’t live near the shoreline, creating the mood of the salty New England coast in your own backyard is easier than you might think. The New England Clam Bake is a traditional method of cooking fresh local seafood and vegetables on the beach, in a fire pit dug in the sand and covered with seaweed. I’ve provided two preparation methods here: one for those on the shoreline, and one for those of us who don’t have access to the beach.
