Easy Pacific Northwest Steamers

This is a quick and easy recipe for preparing a great-tasting batch of steamers. Other herbs can be added to taste. Also, while I haven't tried it yet, next time I will substitute the sherry/water with 1 cup of beer. Do whatever sounds best to you!

  • Rinse and drain clams; set aside.
