You have me stumped.Wow. I think that is a southern dish. The restaurants here usually do oyster shooters steamed or fried. I have had them baked in South Carolina.
Your best bet is to call around to seafood restaurants and see if they back them. I called Salty's on the Columbia and they hadn't heard of anyplace here baking. That doesn't mean they don't. If it were simple like switching margarine for butter, most restaurants can help out but baking takes time usually not available.
Best of luck finding these..
Baked clams are not a Southern dish. They are a New England specialty, often served at big beach side picnics. Southern cooking features oysters, lump crabmeat, soft shell crabs, shad roe, herring roe omelettes, and special fish like pompano, but clams are only minor players.
Sorry, Zckzack. I know you have been posting on both the WA and OR forums, but baked clams just aren't a thing here in the PNW. Would oysters do?
I know there are clam bakes in New England but just plain baked clams are a southern dish too. No sense in fighting. They are baked in a glass dish usually with bread crumbs on top.
I don't see any baked oysters on menus here either. That doesn't mean there aren't any.
A little late on the post but zydecos in bend oregon has baked yes baked clams out of this world. You Have! to drink the broth.
Thanks for letting us know. You could write a review as it might help others who like them that way. I am glad you found them.
