DIRECTIONS

  • Cook the bacon in skillet until crisp.
  • Drain excess fat, roughly chop, and set aside.
  • Next, mix the softened butter, shallots, garlic, parsley, lemon juice, salt and cayenne until combined well.
  • Arrange the clams in your largest skillet in a single layer.
  • Please feel free to steam the clams in batches if they don’t all fit in your pan.
  • Add a cup or so of water, cover, bring to a boil, and steam clams until their shells just begin to open.
  • Remember, the clams will be finished under the broiler, so don’t let them go too long in the pan after they begin to open!
  • Once the clams are cool enough to handle, twist off the top shell and discard.
  • Slide a sharp knife under each clam to loosen it from the bottom shell.
  • Line baking sheets or broiler pans with a crumpled large piece of foil – this allows you to press the shells into the foil so they are less likely to tip over.
  • Spread about ¼ tsp of seasoned butter on each clam, top with chopped bacon, and ½ tsp of breadcrumbs.
  • Arrange clams on baking sheet.
  • The clams can be prepared up to this point, and them covered and refrigerated up to 4 hours until ready to broil.
  • When ready to serve, preheat broiler.
  • Broil clams until crumbs are toasted, and butter is melted and sizzling, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Serve warm.
