- 50 littleneck clams (no larger than 2 inches across)
- 1 cup white wine
- 4 tablespoons melted butter or ghee
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- Lemon wedges, to serve
How to make this recipe
Run the clams under cool water and scrub clean with a stiff brush, discarding any that are open and won’t close when tapped on a firm surface. Rinse and set aside.
In a stockpot, add the wine and bring to a boil on medium-high heat. Gently add the clams to the boiling wine, then cover and steam until fully opened, about 5 minutes.
While the clams are steaming, melt the butter or ghee in a microwave and add the minced garlic. Distribute into small bowls.
Serve immediately with lemon wedges. Be sure to pour the steaming liquid into the serving bowl to help the clams stay nice and warm.
