Portuguese Style Littlenecks

Littleneck clams are hands down my favorite seafood. I eat them raw, steamed or cooked Portuguese style. They are so delicious and relatively easy to cook with a cooking time of under 15 minutes you can have an amazing appetizer or meal. Littlenecks are loaded with protein, with an estimated 22 grams of protein per 3 ounce serving. They are also low in fat, high in potassium and loaded with vitamins and minerals. According to SeafoodHealthFacts.org, they are one of the most sustainable seafood resources, thus making them a great choice to eat.
