I told my dad I'd make him dinner this evening - the loves Spaghetti alle Vongole, so i figured I'd do him that. There's walk to be 6 civilization total, and also I'm having a difficult time figuring the end how countless clams to buy. I was reasoning 5 dozen, my fiancee stated 4. Thoughts?

Also, has actually anyone ever used those canned clams (in enhancement to fresh) in the dish?

You want about an unshelled pound per person, so around 10 littlenecks or for this reason each, because that a complete of 5 dozen. That'll give you around 4 oz meat each per person.

You are watching: How many clams in an ounce

The box meat is okay for dips and such however not something you desire front and also center. Canned clams are normally overcooked and also rubbery.


It's always odd to me just how "unshelled" way "with the shell" and "shelled" way "without the shell."

I recognize it's since "shelling" method removing the shell, but still.


Depends top top which kind of clams you get. Little necks have actually very big thick shells, and little meat. If you get cockles, then the shell won't be as thick for about the very same meat.

Also note some clams won't open up up after being cooked and also have to be discarded. Therefore you desire to go a little overboard.

As because that how plenty of clams to have per person. 10-12 sounds around right. Make some garlic bread to dip into the sauce.

You can additionally make this rosso by including chopped tomatoes.

Don't forget chopped parsley. If friend don't prefer spicy, skip the red pepper flakes.

Don't obtain the crate clams, uneven you simply want the seashells juice come mix through white wine.
