Garlic Steamed Clams

Whether love is in the air, or you're just hanging out with a good friend, we have the perfect dinner for two! Our Garlic Steamed Clams are seasoned to perfection! Plus, when you serve 'em up with a side of cheesy bread, we bet that no matter what the occasion, you'll have a night to remember!

What You'll Need

  • 5 pounds fresh little neck clams
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2-stick) butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • Chopped parsley for garnish

What to Do

  1. Wash clams to remove any dirt or sand.
  2. In a large pot over medium heat, heat oil.  Add garlic and sauté 1 minute or until tender. Add wine; bring to a boil. Add clams, cover, and steam until clams start to open. Add butter and crushed red pepper, cover, and cook until all of the clams open. Discard any that do not open.
  3. Place clams into a large serving bowl (or into smaller ones so that everyone gets their very own) with sauce from pot. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve immediately.
