Razor Clam Fritters

Number of Servings: 4-6


1 cup chopped razor clams (reserve the liquid)
1 bottle flat beer
1 1/2 cup pancake mix
6 green onions - cut very thin, use greens
1/2 green pepper - cut very thin
1 stalk celery - cut very thin


Mix onions, celery, green pepper and pancake mix together. Add clams and juice to other ingredients, then add beer till you have a very thick mixture that can be dropped from spoon into hot oil at 375 degrees F. You may not need all the beer because of the clam juice. Drop by spoonful in oil - cook 2 min. per side - test, if not cooked- drop by smaller spoonfuls.
