Shellfish Recipes: Clams, Crab, Lobster, Oysters, Scallops & Shrimp



(Boston Cooking-School Cook Book, 1896)

Roasted clams are served at Clam Bakes. Clams are washed in sea-water, placed on stones which have been previously heated by burning wood on them, ashes removed, and stones sprinkled with thin layer of seaweed. Clams are piled on stones, covered with seaweed, and a piece of canvas thrown over them to retain the steam.
