Garlic Butter Sauteed Clams
Sauteed Clams – Skillet clams with loads of garlic butter, white wine and parsley. The easiest sauteed clams recipe ever, 15 mins to make!
In my world, summer means sun, sand, water, seafood and BBQ. You don’t do justice to summertime if you’re not in the water (be it swimming pool or the ocean), eating some seafood or BBQ, and have a drink or two. Summer is the best time to enjoy the bounty of the sea, such as clams.
This garlic butter sauteed clams are inspired by my recent travel to Italy. Every restaurant I went to, there is a section of the menu dedicated to seafood, and sauteed clam is always on top of the list. As the name suggests, the clams are cooked with a combination of garlic, butter, olive oil, parsley, with lemon juice. It’s really simple but absolutely delicious.
In the seafood shacks or restaurants in Southern California, you can find similar dishes. It’s my summer ritual to go to the beach, enjoy some of the fresh seafood and shellfish at these restaurants by the sea. A simple dish like this never fails to make me happy. Bon appetit!
