With Matlaw's Stuffed Clams, aka "America's #1 seafood appetizer", Stuffed Scallops and more, it is now easier than ever to discover delicious seafood options that will please everyone this Lenten season.

From February 10th to March 24th many people will observe Lent, abstaining from meat on Fridays and 'casting about' for other nutritious and satisfying alternatives. Matlaw's encourages consumers to 'break out of their shells' and try something different, Matlaw's Stuffed Clams. Available in multiple flavors including Bacon and Cheese, Chorizo, and the best-selling New England Style, each natural clamshell is loaded with a classic blend of golden breadcrumbs, succulent chopped clams, seasonings and more. Frozen fresh, Matlaw's Stuffed Clams are easy to find in the grocery store frozen seafood section, and are so easy to prepare even the kids can help. Simply cook them in the oven, microwave, or on the grill and serve on the half shell in just under 30 minutes. Pair with winter roasted vegetables and a Fish Friday meal is ready in a flash. Families may just find themselves eating more seafood all year long, since these great new choices are so simple to make and tasty to eat.
