2010 BEST Fried Clams

Summer Shack

There’s not a lot of in-between with fried clams. They’re either great—or awful. Summer Shack’s whole Ipswich clams, though, are beyond excellent: fried to a deep gold, crunchy on the outside and tender within, and not an oily, mushy, or rubbery one in the bunch. A squeeze of lemon is all they need.
