Air Fryer Baked Stuffed Clams (Quahog) — As summer starts to approach us, there is nothing better than a great seafood meal, and since I am from Boston, there is nothing like a Baked Stuffed Clam to get the party started.
While everyone nowadays can grab a package of frozen Quahogs or Stuffed Clams, the air fryer does an amazing job at perfectly cooking them. Right in the shells!
Talk about amazing!
Within a few minutes, you can have a great snack, appetizer, lunch or dinner! This was one of my first seafood items I used the Air Fryer for, and they were great.
After I mastered this recipe, I got adventurous and experimented on everything from salmon, shrimp, and even Haddock! Some of my favorite recipes are AIR FRYER BACON WRAPPED SCALLOPS, EASY AIR FRYER CRAB CAKES, AIR FRYER SEAFOOD BOIL, and AIR FRYER CRISPY SHRIMP.
What Is A Quahog?
I do not know if the word Quahog is a New England word, as when I moved to Ohio, they suddenly chnagedf rom Quahog to Stuffed Clams, so you know i had to look it up, now that I am writing about them!
The word Quahog means hard clam. It appears that most of the quahogs or stuffed clams come from the New England region of America.
The part that is edible is inside the shell, which reveals a large piece of soft, white meat.
