Huh? I happened to have a calorie consciouse cook book to hand
and it shows for 3 oz of clams:
126 cal, 1.7 gm fat, and 57 mg cholesterol.

Oysters are much fattier 117/4.2/93.

Presumably the extra calories from fewer grams of fat in clams comes
from protein. (can't imagine it being carbohydrates in this kingdom).

Also lemon sauced scallops has 2.8g fat/22.5 g prot and 16.5 carbo per
I think the carbo is from the flour in which the scallops are browned.
(1.5 lbs scallops, 3/4 cup flour, 3 egg whites, 2/3 cup wine, 1/2 cup
1 TBSP margarine plus spices).
