ABC WEDNESDAY: Q for Quahog

Quahogs are a common appetizer for our fish taverns.
They cook them in many ways but I especially like them ramekin or alive with lots of lemon!


I have never bought quahogs to cook them because I can't understand if they're fresh or not.
I prefer to eat them at my friend's Soula's house.
She knows everything about them.
We hardly eat one or two because she can't stop eating when she has a plate full of them in front of her!!!

No,no I'm lying!!! She's a good hostess!!!
Unfortunately neither of us have ever found a pearl in them!!!

They are very tasty. When you eat one, you can't stop eating. Excellent choise for Q.

This is something I've never tried. In South Wales, where I grew up, many people ate cockles, but I never liked them.
Quahog is an excellent choice for Q.

Thank you for visiting.

Wouldn't that be SO exciting to get a pearl? My sister would like these. She loves all things that are from the sea : ). Hope your week is happy!

Great choice for Q! I have learnt many new things today! I suppose Quahog is a bit like mussels or oysters.

I've never eaten a quahog, and I probably wont start now. :) Good post.

May be it's what we call "coque" in French, good but sometimes hard.

So are those oysters? I couldn't eat them live!

I notice you have cyclamen in your previous post. My son bought me 2 of those for my birthday!

I've heard of these but must admit to never having tasted them. Are they at all like oysters? If so, I'd really like them!

There are quahogs on the Eastern Coast of the USA, but in the West we have other sorts of clams.

They look very yummy, at least if you know how to prepare them. I invite you to come take a ride on my quad into the Powell River, BC, back country. - Margy

I have never eaten quahogs but we love to eat mussels in Istanbul … We eat them alive with lots of lemon like yo do or fried with a special sauce ... Delicious! :-)
