  • Preparation Time: 40 minutes
  • Cook time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 1 lb Clams
  • 2 cups Panko Breading
  • 2 Eggs
  • Milk
  • Flour
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Garlic Powder
  • Vegetable Oil


Rinse clams under cold water and drain.

Mix flour with salt, pepper, and garlic to taste. Beat eggs with small amount of milk.

Place about 1/2 inch oil in a large frying pan on a medium high setting. Dredge the clams through the flour first, then the eggs and last through the panko breading, making sure the clams are fully covered through each step. Once oil is hot, place the clams in the fry pan. Cook 45 to 60 seconds per side until golden brown.

Place fried clams on paper towel to drain excess oil.
