Steamed Clams with White Wine and Garlic
Steamed clams are cooked together with wine wine, garlic, a touch of butter and loads of fresh herbs. And have extra crusty bread ready to soak up the delicious broth.
Servings: 4 servings
- 4 tbsp unsalted butter
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 small-medium sized shallot chopped finely
- 2-3 large garlic cloves chopped finely
- 1 tsp red pepper flakes optional for heat
- 1 1/2 cups white wine
- 2 pounds littleneck clams cleaned and scrubbed
- Juice of 1 lemon
- Small bunch of fresh parsley leaves roughly chopped
Begin by heating a large skillet over medium heat and add the butter and olive oil. Cook until the butter is almost fully melted.
Add the chopped shallots and cook for 2-3 minutes, until shallots just change color. Add in the garlic and red pepper flakes and cook for another 1-2 minutes, stirring everything together.
Pour in white wine and add in the clams. Give everyone one good stir and cover skillet with a lid. Cook clams until they all open, about 7-9 minutes.
Once done, turn off heat and add lemon juice and fresh herbs. Give everything one more good stir and serve with crusty bread.
