Clams Casino

Ingredients

  • 18 Cherrystone or little neck clams
  • 3 cups dry white wine
  • Bacon, cut into slices to cover clam
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 3 TBL shallot chopped
  • 4 scallions trimmed and minced
  • 1⁄2 cup flat leaf parsley chopped
  • 1⁄4 cup plain bread crumb
  • 1⁄4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2-3 TBL EVOO

 

Directions

Steam Clams in the wine in a large pot just until they open – overcooking them makes them tough. Let the clams cool and then remove the “lid”.

Cook bacon until almost fully crisp and drain. Cut into slices to cover the clams. 

Reserve 1 TBL bacon drippings.

Preheat oven to 425.

In a different pan, over medium heat, melt butter and drippings, and add garlic, shallots, scallions, parsley, and a splash of white wine and cook until soft – about 5 minutes. 

Add red pepper flakes and remove from heat.

To assemble, pour some of the butter mixture over the clam, add bread crumb, and top with bacon. Arrange on a baking sheet and bake until the bacon and bread crumbs are browned . Serve with lemon.
