    ellie_'s Note:

    I came across this recipe and first thing I thought was "Not the Steamed Clams I grew up on" but thought this was a more elegant version of the steamed clams I loved eating as a kid in the summer. I haven't tried this recipe yet but can't wait to try these and surprise my family with these. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (March 1984)

      I LOVED this recipe Ellie. This was my first time making clams and this was fool-proof. I added a lot more garlic just because I love it, but accidently forgot the red pepper flakes. It was still very good. I will be making this again for sure.

      This was so yummy...but I do have to say that I didn't taste nor feel the hot sauce...either you need to omit it or add loads more...with that said this was very delicious...I served it with a couple slices of french bread to soak up the juices...thanks for posting it...=)

      This made a great broth. I also used a clove of garlic. I'm going to try this on some white fish.
