Cooking from your prepper pantry can be a great way to make delicious meals with ingredients you already have on hand. One of the best recipes to make with pantry staples is homemade clam cakes and tarter sauce. This classic New England dish is easy to make and sure to please the whole family.
To make the clam cakes, you’ll need a few pantry staples such as canned clams, flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, and eggs. Start by draining the clams and chopping them into small pieces. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper. Add the eggs and mix until everything is well combined. Then add the chopped clams and stir until everything is evenly distributed.
Next, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Drop spoonfuls of the clam mixture into the hot oil and cook for about 3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Once the clam cakes are cooked through, remove them from the pan and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to absorb any excess oil.
The final step is to make the tarter sauce. This is a simple mixture of mayonnaise, pickle relish, lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix all of the ingredients together in a small bowl until everything is well combined. Serve the clam cakes with the tarter sauce on the side for an extra burst of flavor.
Homemade clam cakes and tarter sauce are a delicious way to use pantry staples to create a classic New England dish. With just a few simple ingredients, you can make this tasty meal in no time. Enjoy!
