Broiled Chesapeake Bay Clams, Lemon, EVOO,  Oregano, Prosciutto
Traveling down to the local market and finding fresh littleneck clams is kind of unusual where I live. Large food  markets are a good distance away so I decided to try a local market nearby. As I walked in the scent of fresh vegetables, herbs, seafood and tomatoes opened my eyes, hopefully I would I be in luck? Chesapeake Bay Clams As I walk though the isles I noticed tons of fresh poultry, pork roasts and  freshly baked breads and pastry items. I kept my fingers crossed as I approached the seafood aisle.
