Place the clams and juice in a blender. Using a quick on-and-off method, blend clams until just minced (they should be not pureed). Pour minced clams into a bowl; add pepper, evaporated milk, flour, and egg and mix well. Heat the frying pan to about 375 degrees and grease lightly with oil. For each fritter, scoop out one teaspoonful of the mixture onto the hot frying pan. When just golden brown, turn with a spatula and lightly brown the other side. Keep greasing the frying pan as needed. Yields about 40 fritters.
