Easy Clambake Recipe

Updated on May 29, 2013

The time of year for clam bakes are soon arriving. Can’t you just taste the delectable little morsels? The problem is all the trouble and time a clam bake takes. I have a method that makes a clam bake easy and delicious. How is a clam bake made easy? Try my recipe made from the comfort of your kitchen.

No more putting an enormous pot on the propane burner and layering it with corn, potatoes and clams. That is after building the bake and using seaweed and all the hoop-la associated with a bake.No sir, this is an easy clam bake recipe that will make you wish you had bought an extra dozen clams.

This method involves soaking the clams first. This will be the messiest part. I use a cooler. I pour in 1 ½ gallons of cold water, 2/3 cup of table salt and 1 ½ cup of corn meal. Then I stir around with a large spoon to mix and partially dissolve. To this solution I add about 4 or 5 dozen little neck clams and I let them soak for 15 minutes. This should clean out any grit or sand that is trapped in the clams. Now comes the fun part.

Here is my Easy Clam Bake Recipe.

INGREDIENTS:

½ CUP OF OLIVE OIL. (ANY TYPE)

4 GREEN ONIONS, CHOPPED

5 CLOVES OF GARLIC, MINCED FINE

¾ CUP CELERY AND/OR CELERY TOPS, CHOPPED

¼ CUP CHOPPED FRESH PARSLEY

¾ CUP WHITE WINE

FRESH CRACKED BLACK PEPPER TO TASTE

5 DOZEN LITTLE NECK CLAMS


COOKING DIRECTIONS:

PREHEAT LARGE 12 QUART POT ON STOVE

ADD THE OLIVE OIL, HEAT UNTIL A DROP OF WATER SIZZLES

ADD THE GREEN ONIONS, GARLIC AND CELERY AND SAUTEE FOR 3 MINUTES.

ADD THE CLAMS TO THE POT.

POUR IN THE WHITE WINE AND ADD THE PEPPER.

PUT A LID ON THE POT AND LOWER FLAME TO MEDIUM.

STEAM CLAMS IN FLAVORED BROTH FOR 8- 10 MINUTES.

CHECK THE CLAMS TO BE SURE THEY ARE OPENED AND REMOVE.

STRAIN THE BROTH AND USE AS A DIPPING SAUCE.

Go ahead and try and resist the taste of these clams. They are tender and flavorable, even if you do not use the broth. I always pop some ears of corn in the microwave, and roast a 5 – 7 lb. chicken in the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes per pound. The internal temperature should be at 180 degrees Fahrenheit.

I also put in 5 large baked potatoes in the same 400 degree oven directly on the rack in the oven and bake for 45 – 60 minutes, depending on the size of the potatoes. They are done when they feel soft when pierced with a fork. You have a complete meal if you open a couple of cans of Chunky Campbell's New England Clam Chowder.

How easy is this clam bake? Soak the clams; chop up green onion, garlic, celery and parsley. Sautee the solids, except parsley for 2 minutes, and steam the clams in that mix with parsley and white wine added for 8 -10 minutes. Ahead of time, you pierced a few potatoes and put them and a chicken in a 400 degree oven. This recipe is super easy and will be 100% delicious.

So, if you want to be as happy as a clam, try it, you’ll like it
