Soft Shell Clams (Steamers) with Garlic Butter Recipe
Serves 2 | Prep Time: 10 Minutes | Cook Time: 5 Minutes
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 lbs soft shell clams, cleaned and scrubbed
1/4 cup white wine
1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf (Italian) parsley
Salt to taste
Heat up a small pot and add the melted butter. Saute the garlic until you smell the aroma, but not browned. Add the soft shell clams into the pot, stir to combine well. Add the white wine and cover the pot with its lid.
As soon as all clams open up, add the parsley and salt to taste. Serve immediately.
There is a thin grey-color membrane that covers the soft soft clams. Remove the membrane thoroughly before eating.
