Expert Tips

Double delicious. Love that clam flavor? Toss in a second can of minced clams for some super shellfish deliciousness.

Think ahead. This dip is delicious right after it's whipped together, but even better the next day! Making the recipe a day before you need it, then storing it in the fridge overnight, gives all the flavors time to meld together. Yum!
