Cook time: 12-15 minutes | Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons shallots, minced
  • 3 tablespoons garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon red crushed pepper
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 3 dozen littleneck clams, scrubbed and cleaned
  • 2 tablespoons tarragon
  • 2 tablespoons mint

Directions

Clean and scrub the clams. Keep over ice. In the meantime add butter to a Dutch oven on medium heat. Once butter has melted add the shallots and cook for about 2 minutes then add the garlic and red crushed pepper. Cook until the garlic becomes fragrant. Add the wine and let it cook off for about 2 minutes. Add the cleaned clams and cover with a lid. Let it cook and steam for about 5 minutes until all the clams have opened.
