- In a large bowl, rinse the clams under cold running water and gently rub them together with your hands to allow any sand to rinse off their shells. Rinse and drain a few times. Leave them in cold water until ready to cook them.
- In a large saucepan, heat olive oil over low heat and add the garlic. Saute the garlic for only 1 minute to be fragrant (no need to brown the garlic). Toss in about 1/2 of the chopped parsley, and reserve the other half for later.
- Meanwhile, drain the clams into a colander and quickly transfer them directly to the pot with garlic and olive oil. Add in the crushed red pepper and salt. Cover. Stir the clams after a minute.
- Allow the clams to steam and simmer with the garlic for about 2 minutes. Pour in white wine and clam juice and cover again, continue to steam the clams, stirring occasionally, for about 2 to 3 minutes. Their shells will open gradually. Once all clams are fully opened, turn off the heat. No need to overcook them.
- Toss in the remaining chopped parsley. If serving alone, transfer clams along with broth to a large serving bowl and serve.
- Also, if you are planning to serve clams with spaghetti or linguine, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add some salt (about 1 tsp.) and toss in the pasta. Cook the pasta to al-dente. Using a ladle spoon, grab some of the salted water (about 1/4 cup) from the pasta, and add it to the clams.
- Drain pasta, and transfer pasta to the pot with all the clams and broth.
- Stir and serve into individual serving bowls. Garnish on top with more clams in shells and sprinkle on top with freshly chopped parsley. Serve immediately.
- Serves 4 to 5

MUSSELS, CLAMS AND SHRIMP IN SPICY BROTH
- Heat the oil in a heavy large pot over medium heat. Add the garlic, bay leaf, and crushed red pepper. Saute until the garlic is tender, about 1 minute. Add the wine and bring to a boil. Add the tomatoes. Bring to a simmer. Simmer until the tomatoes begin to break down and the flavors blend, about 5 minutes. Stir in the clams. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in the mussels. Cover and cook until the clams and mussels open, about 5 minutes longer.
- Using a tongs, transfer the opened shellfish to serving bowls (discard any shellfish that do not open). Add the shrimp and basil to the simmering tomato broth. Simmer until the shrimp are just cooked through, about 1 1/2 minutes. Divide the shrimp and tomato broth among the bowls. Serve with the warm bread.
Use this broth as a base for New England, Manhattan, and Rhode Island clam chowders. The amount you'll get depends on how much liquid is in the clams. After straining the broth, you'll need to dilute it with water to get a fresh, not-too-salty taste.

Yield Yields 6 to 10 cups diluted broth and 1-1/2 to 2 cups meat
Number Of Ingredients 1
- Wash the clams one at a time under running water, scrubbing off any sand with your fingers, a scouring pad, or a brush. If a clam is slightly open and doesn't close when tapped on a hard surface, discard it. Try to pry open any clam that feels very heavy. If it's full of sand, discard it.
- Put 2 cups of water in a heavy-duty 6- to 7-quart pot or Dutch oven, cover, and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the clams and cook, covered, for 5 minutes (if the liquid threatens to boil over, set the lid ajar and reduce the heat slightly). Remove the lid, stir, and as the clams pop open completely, transfer them with tongs to a large bowl. (Recover the pot if necessary until the clams start opening regularly.) Discard any clams that have not opened after 20 minutes. If a shell is a little cracked but still pops open, the clam is fine to use.
- When cool enough to handle, remove each clam from its shell over the bowl, leaving the adductor muscles on either side of the clam attached to the shell. Squeeze each clam gently over the bowl to capture as much of the broth as possible and then transfer the meat to a small bowl and discard the shells.
- Strain the broth from the bowl and the pot through a fine sieve lined with a double layer of paper towels set over a medium bowl or large measuring cup. Close and press the paper towels to release more broth.
- Dilute the broth with water (3 to 5 cups) until it is pleasantly briny, not overly salty. The meat and broth can be refrigerated separately for up to 1 day before using. Extra broth can be frozen and saved for another use.
SCOTT URE'S CLAMS AND GARLIC

- Add clams, cover, and steam till clams start to open. Add butter, cover, and cook till most or all of the clams open. Discard any that do not open. Transfer clams and juice to 2 large bowls. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve.

FRAGRANT THAI-STYLE CLAMS IN COCONUT BROTH

- Heat coconut oil in a heavy-bottomed soup pot over medium-high heat. Add onions and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add chicken broth and bring to a simmer.
- Add lemongrass, galangal, ginger, chiles, lime leaves, sugar and fish sauce. Simmer for 20 minutes. Add coconut milk, then taste broth for salt and adjust. (You may prepare up to this point 1 to 2 hours in advance and leave at room temperature.)
- Bring mixture to a boil over high heat and add clams. Cover and cook for 5 to 8 minutes, stirring once or twice, until all clams have opened.
- Transfer clams to soup bowls. Strain broth if desired and ladle over clams. Sprinkle with cilantro and scallions. Squeeze lime over each bowl and serve with lime wedges.
STEAMED CLAMS IN GARLIC SAFFRON BROTH
- Crumble saffron into 1 cup of boiling water. Set aside to steep.

Add reserved saffron broth, and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, and add clams, chopped tomato, and half the chopped parsley. Stir to combine. Cover, and let steam until clams are opened, 10 to 12 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining parsley and pepper, and serve immediately.

- Scrub the clams, and rinse clean. Bring 2 cups of water to a boil in an 8-quart stockpot over high heat. Add the clams, and cover tightly. After 5 minutes, uncover, and stir the clams with a wooden spoon. Quickly cover the pot again, and let steam for 5 minutes more, or until most of the clams have opened. Don't wait for them all to open, or they will be overcooked. It should only take a little tug or prying to open the stragglers once they are all removed from the heat. The total cooking time for large cherrystones will be about 10 minutes; quahogs will need as much as 5 more minutes. While the clams are steaming, the broth should become foamy and light. It usually spills over a bit just as the clams are cooked and ready.
- As soon as you remove the clams from the stove, carefully pour as much of the broth as you can into a tall, narrow container. Let the broth sit for 10 minutes, then carefully pour through a fine-mesh strainer. After sitting, 99 percent of the grit will have collected at the bottom of the container. If you are not using the broth within the hour, chill it as quickly as possible, and cover after it has completely cooled.
- Remove the clams from their shells, cover, and refrigerate. After they have cooled a bit, dice them into 1/2-inch pieces. Cover again, and keep refrigerated until ready to use.
CLAMS IN BROTH
- Cook clams:
- In 5- to 6-quart heavy pot over moderate heat, heat oil until hot but not smoking. Add garlic and sauté until golden brown, about three minutes. Add salt, pepper, and pepper flakes, and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute. Increase heat to moderately high and add clams, white wine, 1 1/4 cups water, and thyme. Cover and bring to a boil. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until clams open, about 5 to 7 minutes. Discard clams that do not open after 8 minutes.
- While clams cook, grill bread:
- Preheat grill (high heat).
- Brush bread slices with olive oil on both sides and grill, flipping once, until golden brown and crispy, about 4 minutes per side. (Alternately, bread may be toasted in broiler until golden brown and crispy.) Keep warm.
- When clams are cooked, stir in parsley. Serve clams with grilled bread.
CLAMS IN CREAM AND THYME BROTH
- Wash clams in cold running water and scrub with a brush to remove surface sand.
- Place clams in a large saucepan with clam juice, thyme, pepper, and cream. Cover and cook over high heat, shaking occasionally, until shells open, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat. Season with salt to taste.
CLAMS IN SPICY COCONUT-LIME BROTH
- Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add chopped shallots and sauté until tender, about 3 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon ginger, 1 teaspoon turmeric and 1/4 teaspoon cumin and stir 1 minute. Add clams, clam juice, coconut milk, tomatoes with their juices, jalapeño and lime peel and bring to boil. Cover and cook until clams open, about 7 minutes (discard any that do not open). Stir in lime juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer clams and sauce to bowl; sprinkle with green onions and serve.
- Place a steamer insert into a saucepan. Pour beer in and fill to 1 to 2 inches below the bottom of the steamer. Add clams to the steamer insert, cover, and bring to a boil.
- Steam until the top clams barely open, 3 to 5 minutes; do not overcook or clams will become tough and rubbery.
- While clams are steaming, melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add parsley and garlic and saute until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.

MUSSELS, CLAMS AND SHRIMP IN SPICY BROTH

- Pick through the clams and discard any that are open and do not close when firmly tapped-these clams are dead and should not be eaten. Add the rest to a colander.
- Rinse and scrub the remaining live clams to remove any sand or barnacles from the shells.
- Fill a bowl large enough to fit the colander with cold water and 3-4 tablespoons of salt for every 6 cups (1.5 liters) of water. Place the colander in the bowl of salt water and soak the clams for at least 1 hour, up to overnight, so they release any grit and sand. The colander allows the grit to fall to the bottom of the bowl. Live clams will filter the water while they push out any impurities in the process.
- Transfer the clams in the colander to another large bowl of fresh water to desalt for 15-30 minutes.
- Grill the bread: Slice the sourdough baguette into ½-inch (1 cm) pieces.
- Brush each slice with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
- Toast the bread on a grill pan over medium-high heat until golden brown and crusty, about 2 minutes per side. Set aside.
- Make the coconut broth: Melt the coconut oil in a wok or large pan over medium heat. Add the red onion and cook until it starts to become translucent, about 3 minutes.
- Firmly tap the lemongrass stalks with a wooden spoon to bruise, which helps release aroma and flavor during cooking. Trim the ends, then slice into approximately 4-inch (10 cm) pieces.
- Add the lemongrass to the wok, along with the ginger, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Cook until fragrant, about 3 minutes.
- Carefully pour in the white wine and stir to deglaze the pan. Bring to a simmer and cook until reduced by half, about 5 minutes.
- Add the brown sugar, fish sauce, vegetable broth, and coconut milk. Bring to a boil.
- Add the clams, return to a boil, and cook for 5-8 minutes, or until all of the clams are fully opened. If any clams remain closed, discard them.
- Discard the lemongrass stalks and divide the clams and broth between serving bowls. Garnish with scallions and cilantro and serve with the grilled bread for dipping.
