One day while making fried clams I realized I was out of flour. It was to late to go to the store so I improvised and used Aunt Jemima pancake mix. The box kind that is dry. The rest is history. Now, I sometimes use pancake mix when making fried fish as well. The clams came out tender and delicious. Enjoy
