- Cover, and simmer until all clams have opened. Season with oregano, salt and pepper before serving. Drink or discard remaining beer.

"Great recipe and was an instant hit. One major note is to use pure Portuguese chourico, not spanish or mexican, for a truly delicious flavor!..." See more"
"This is a really great clam recipe. The cornmeal is to get the sand out of the clams, so unless you're harvesting your own you can probably skip that step. This is also great with mussels. Spanish or ..." See morePortuguese chourico is the key, you can't use the Mexican kind."
"This recipe is a dead ringer for the Clams Del Diablo we had at Thee Oceanaire Seafood Room in Seattle, and it's not your father's steamed clam dish, either! Loads of flavor & just enough heat to keep..." See more things interesting. I'll be serviing it again this weekend! I used Negro Modelo beer keeping with the Latin theme of the recipe. Two notes: make sure you use Spanish chorizo, and not Mexican. Spanish chorizo is more like pepperoni and isn't a wet sausage like it's Mexican cousin. I also doubled the garlic, and am glad I did."
