“These clams are steamed in wine, butter, and herbs. When the clams are gone, dip Italian bread in the broth.” - by Bonnie Dailey
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook garlic in butter briefly. Stir in wine, and season with oregano, parsley, and red pepper flakes.

"I'm giving this recipe 4 stars for several reasons. I cooked it as directed, except for the amount of clams, and felt several things were out of sink. First, 2 cups of wine is more then needed, 1 cu..." See morep would be plenty. Secondy, I would increase the amount of red pepper flakes to 2 teaspoons, for a little extra kick. With that said, I thought this was real good as is, but could have been better. What really blew my mind was the amount of clams it called for....."36 small clams in shell"....to serve 6. Are you serious?? I cooked up 5# of small calms, about 150-200 clams, and had enough sauce left over for 100 more. Who eats just 6 clams? Anyway....I'm sure I will make this again, with the changes I mentioned."
"YUM! The family really liked this for our 7 fish deast on Christmas Eve. HINT: Once you scrub the clams, put them in a bowl of cold water and sprinkle 1 T corn meal over them. Let them sit for half an..." See mored hour then rinse and cook. This cornmeal "snack" feeds them and they spit out any sand they have inside in favor of the cornmeal. Learned this trick from Cooking Light."
"wonderful recipe! i made this as an appetiser this evening for my boyfriend (he is milano italian, extremely picky eater) and myself.i served it with extra fresh parsley and lemon wedges, crusty bread..." See more. was only able to eat two clams because my boyfriend hogged the bowl and ate everything, but i was just happy dipping the bread in the broth. It's great (the sauce) on spaghetti too. excellent with a glass of good white wine"
