Panko Clam Sammy
Salt and pepper to taste
Remove clams from shell and soak in milk overnight, or as long as possible.
Beat egg whites with pinch of salt and pepper using a fork for one minute.
Dredge clams in flour, then egg white, then panko. Set aside
Heat oil in a medium saucepan until a small amount of egg batter begins to fry on contact (medium-high heat).
Put hoagies in toaster or under oven broiler.
Fry battered clams for four to five minutes, turning once after three minutes or edges turn golden-brown. Don't overcook.
After removing clams from frying oil, chop them coarsely.
Serve on hoagie with lettuce, tomato, and generous amount of tartar.
