Steamed Stuffed Clams Recipe

Step 1

Place the clams into a large pot together with the salt and 1/2 cup of water. Place over high heat and steam the clams for about 5 minutes, shaking the pot frequently, just until the clams open.

Step 2

Drain the clams. Remove clams from the shells, discarding any shells that have not opened. Mince the clams. Rinse and dry 18 half shells.

Step 3

In a mixing bowl, combine clams and all the remaining ingredients. Mix well, and toss the mixture lightly against the inside of the bowl to combine and compact it.

Step 4

With a spoon dipped in cold water, stuff the reserved shells with this mixture, mounding it and smoothing it. Arrange clams on a tray in a steamer for 20 minutes.
