Steamed Clams on the Half Shell

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Rita1652

I couldn't find good fresh littleneck clams so the fish monger told me about these Northern Chef Clams. They are great! Farm Raised Clams on the half-Shell Pre-cooked-Quick frozen. They are all cleaned and purged to eliminate any sand. And processed over strict specifications. A Tai Foong Usa Inc product. And so very cheap! There's 24 clams in a package for $2.00. They are frozen so this can be kept in the freezer and whipped up for unexpected company! Servings are 2-6 depending on if you're making an appetizer or a meal.

Excellent! Finding fresh clams in Phoenix requires a separate trip to a specialty store. I'll be making many trips for this dish. I made this as directed except for using 2 pounds of clams (1 for DH and 1 for me)! I served this over linguini and we mopped up every bit of sauce with crusty bread.
