Steamed Clams and Mussels

More seafood? Why not? I'm going to post two seafood recipes in a separate posts. This one's my other half's favorite, Steamed Clams and Mussels. Enjoy!

Steamed Clams And Mussels


2 lbs Clams
1 lb Mussels
3 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
2 cloves of Garlic, chopped
3 Roma Tomatoes, blanch, seeded and chopped
2 Birds Eye Chili(small chili), chopped
1 cup White Wine
2 Tbsp Italian Parsley, chopped
1 Tbsp lemon Juice
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Sea Salt to taste


Place the cleaned clams and mussels in a large pan. Add in the butter, garlic, tomatoes, chilies and white wine. Cover the pan and cook over a high heat for about, 5 to 10 minutes or until all the clams and mussels swing open. To serve, mix in the lemon juice, some black pepper and season with sea salt. Then sprinkle some chopped parsley.
