Feast of the Seven Fishes Dish 5 Linguini with White Clam Sauce
Updated: Jan 4
This is not a Creole or Cajun dish. However, clams are traditionally found in one dish during the feast of the Seven Fishes
Fresh clams are not found locally in the waters that surround New
Orleans. They are found along the Atlantic shores of the New England
states. However, this is a favorite dish of mine. It is one that can be
prepared quickly. This is one of the dishes that I cooked a lot when I
was in my teens. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
