Nothing beats a homemade baked clam. We’ve left the clam whole and substituted wheat germ for the bread crumbs. You’ll see how delicious and nutritious they are.

Makes 12 baked clams

1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano

1 clove garlic, finely chopped

2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese

1/4 cup Kretschmer Original Toasted Wheat Germ

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 dozen small raw clams

Fresh lemon juice, to taste

  1. Turn on broiler. Line sheet pan with foil. Stir together oregano, garlic, Parmesan cheese, wheat germ and salt. Stir in olive oil. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile steam clams in pot with about 1/4 inch water in bottom until they open. (Discard any that do not open and do not overcook.) Once clams are cool enough to handle, remove top shells; loosen clam from the shell (but do not remove) with small spoon. 
  3. Spoon wheat germ mixture onto each clam. Squeeze fresh lemon juice to taste over clams. Place clams under broiler until lightly browned and crispy, 2 to 3 minutes.
