Ingredients

  • 1 stick butter
  • 5 cloves chopped garlic
  • 1 large jalapeño (I always remove some of the seeds, but not all)
  • 1 Barrymore Pinot Grigio
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 bag clams—the smaller the better

Directions

1. Melt butter and add garlic and jalapeño. Cook for 3-4 minutes on medium heat. Add the wine and cook down for about 5 minutes. Remove from the stove and squeeze lemon into butter mixture.

2. Turn on grill to medium-high and spread clams on a cookie sheet. Spread around until they open.

3. Warm up butter if need be. Toss onto clams and coat.

4. Serve with a warm baguette.

Clam Shopping Tip

Seafood shopping is quite easy in the general sense. Rule of thumb: if it smells fishy, don't buy. Fresh seafood should smell mild and more like the ocean and sea water rather than fish.

Clam Cooking Tip

Looking for a quick mid-week dinner? Seafood is a safe bet. It's quick to cook and simple recipes can get dinner on the table in 20 minutes.
