Tender, Crunchy Gorton’s Clam Strips baked to a perfection and stuffed into a buttered soft roll. These Classic New England Clam Strip Rolls are a New England Summer staple and feature homemade tartar sauce. Thank you, Gorton’s for sponsoring this delicious post!
The Lenten season is one of my favorite times of year for several reasons. Aside from the most important religious one, I love that it is a time of sacrifice, accountability, and faith. It also means Spring, and Easter is right around the corner, and that makes me smile. For foodies, it represents a time to enjoy some seafood favorites like these Classic New England Clam Strip Rolls.
Clam strips are the most underrated part of the clam if you ask me. Everyone loves full belly fried clams, but for me, it is all about the strips. I love the tender, yet slightly rubbery, and crisp taste of clam strips and think the folks at Gorton’s have perfected the recipe. I love the golden crunch these frozen clam strips bake up into. They have a fresh taste that is reminiscent of a day at the beach.
Being able to make this Classic New England Clam Strip Roll at Home is really amazing!
I don’t know about you but potato salad goes so well with clam strips. I decided to make a colorful Dill Fingerling Potato Salad. You can get that full recipe on Sizzling Eats. It pairs so well with the buttery nostalgic taste of this Classic New England Clam Strip Roll. Topped with some fresh tartar sauce (always a must) and a freshly buttered and grilled roll, this clam strip roll would make the perfect at home Lent meal.
I added some iceberg lettuce to the bun and then stuffed it with some Gorton’s Crunchy Clam Strips.
Let’s just say as I was making them, my girls were really going to town. I really love the way they came out hence the pics. They just look so yummy and I really wanted to capture this delicious memory so that I can recreate it again soon! They did not care for the potato salad, but the clam strip rolls were exactly what they love to eat!
They have alerted me that this made the “best lunch ever” and that I need to make these Gorton’s Clam Strips a regular grocery list item.
Now that they are buy one, get one free quite frequently at our store, I can’t help but agree!
