Unbelievable Clams and Garlic created by Choppy-choppy

I got this off of all recipes and modified it a bit. It is absolutely unbelievable! This is restaurant quality and so easy and delicious I swear you will make these over and over! Serve to guests and they will rave! I serve these in large bowls with lots of crusty bread for dipping but this could also be served on top of pasta.

    Absolutely delicious! Served it with an artisan sourdough loaf, freshly steamed asparagus and a bottle of pinot grigio - some of the best clams I've ever eaten!

    This was yummy! Just a word of warning...use less lemon juice first and then taste it before adding the rest. I think my lemon half was too large b/c it tasted too strongly of lemon. I think I'd also maybe try adding some veggie or chicken broth to the wine for a bit more flavor. Can't wait to try it again.

    I agree....these are restaurant quality, and so simple that I may never order them when out again. I served them with crusty french bread and a refreshing cucumber salad. Thanks for posting.

    This was very easy and delicious. I added some sliced baby bellas when the garlic was cooking and all through the cooking process and served it over bucatini pasta. We found it a keeper.
