Smoked Clams

The beauty of this recipe is its ease and versatility. You can do this outdoors on a smoker or easily modify a charcoal grill, or if the weather outside isn't cooperating, you can make these clams in the comfort of your kitchen.


To make the smoker, use a wide pot and a strainer. Add the wet hickory chips and place over medium heat. Set the strainer in the middle of the pot. Put the clams on the strainer and cover with a lid.

Meanwhile, heat the soy oil in a sauté pan over medium heat for 30 seconds. Add the shallot and cook for less than 1 minute, then add the tomatoes, onion, and cilantro. Sauté for 1 minute and carefully add the tequila. Add the butter and clam juice. When the butter has melted, add the lime juice and season with salt, to taste.

The clams should be ready by now. Transfer to 4 serving dishes and pour the sauce on top of each. Serve immediately.
