DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse and drain clams; set aside.
  • Heat olive oil in large heavy pot over medium heat.
  • Add garlic, dill, and thyme and heat until garlic is just starting to brown (about 2 min).
  • Add sherry and water and heat until steaming (about 1 min).
  • Add clams, cover pot and cook 5 minutes.
  • Add butter and stir gently until well blended with juices.
  • Ladle out clams into a large serving bowl.
  • Remove any clams that did not open all the way.
  • Pour remaining juices over clams.
  • Serve hot with fresh bread on the side.
  • I served this with a lighter beer and fruity white wine in keeping with flavors of the Pacific Northwest.
  • Don't forget another bowl to throw the shells in!
