National Clams on the Half Shell Day Date in the current year: March 31, 2016

National Clams on the Half Shell Day National Clams on the Half Shell Day is a great day for all seafood lovers. Celebrate this annual holiday on March 31 with a special dish for your family.

There are different names of clams that vary on their size, region and even personal decision of a merchant. When you buy clams in the shell, they must be alive. This is the same rule, as with oysters. Be sure that clams' shells are tightly closed. If they are slightly open, a light tap should make them quickly shut. If the clams you chose are dead, they can not be eaten.

You can find hundreds of new recipes for cooking your shells and making the best dinner in a week. Clams can be boiled in wine and water or baked and served with some sauce. But you can also make a clams casino, which is a great dish developed in the Little Casino in Narragansett, Rhode Island. This dish was developed for a wealthy woman who wanted something special for her guests. The chef came up with a dish of clams with breadcrumbs and bacon. This dish became so popular, that it appeared in menus of restaurants across the United States.
