Growing up on the Florida Gulf Coast, I gained an appreciation for seafood early on. While there are a few seafood items I shy away from, overall, if you put seafood in front of me, I am going to eat it. When I was approached about reviewing Matlaw’s Stuffed Clams, I was excited to try something new. So, I gathered up friends and family for a night of tasty fun.
When the clams arrived I noticed just how much stuffing one shell had. We decided to enjoy salad and shrimp alfredo alongside the Matlaw’s Stuffed Clams. The combination was perfect.
Don’t they just look like the best baked clam goodness? Having never really had clams (at least that I can remember) I wasn’t sure what to expect. Thankfully, I was not disappointed. The flavor was right on. No fishy taste (which sometimes happens with seafood), perfectly seasonedm and I loved that it was served in a clam shell. Other than choosing the desired cooking method and placing the clams, there really is no preparation. Quite honestly, it’s one of the easiest seafood dishes I have “made” in a long time!
There are two ways to cook the clams, the grill or baked in a conventional. Whose the conventional oven, but you can cook them in a foil “boat” on the grill, which is great for those outdoor summer gatherings. All of my guests were impressed with Matlaw’s Stuffed Clams and are pushing me to plan a surf and turf night next. They complemented the shrimp alfredo amazingly, I bet they would be amazing with steak.
Here’s a little bit more about Matlaw’s Stuffed Clams and the variations they offer:

**These are my personal experiences, while I hope you have the same experience I can’t guarantee it will be so. If you are allergic to seafood or shellfish then this probably isn’t the best option for you. Just keeping it real!**
