This flavorful clam dip recipe is simple to make. All you need to do is finely chop or mince some of the ingredients and then stir everything together. The texture of this dip is just as good as the flavor. The clam chunks are pleasantly chewy and the red onion and green bell pepper give the dip a nice crunch. Feel free to lower the fat content by using fat-free or reduced-fat sour cream and cream cheese, because the resulting dip will still be creamy.

You can serve this with corn chips, rye chips, potato chips, and slices of French bread, crackers, vegetable crudités or anything else you like to dip. It goes with pretty much anything. If you are catering for a party or just wanting to make a flavorful snack, then clam dip is always a great idea. It has a distinctive flavor and a satisfying creaminess that adults and kids will love.

Cayenne can pack a punch though, so keep the amount minimal. Not everyone likes spicy dips. This recipe is easy to double or triple if you have more than a few people coming over, so make as much as you think you will need. There will definitely be none left at the end of your party!

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.

Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.

Thanks for visiting,
