sfprankster's (mis)adventures on a Slow Boat From Manilla - Clams

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Man, nor woman, can live on smoked meats alone... th_dunno-1[1].gif 

 

Got a deal on a bag of Manilla Clams from the local fishmonger... 241.png

 

 

 

Manilla Clam Steamers

 

 

Manilla clams steamed in canola oil, butter, onions, garlic(lots), salt, fresh cracked black pepper and white wine...

 

  

 

 

 

...clam broth spooned over the clams...

 

...little chopped parsley...

 

  

 

 

 

...served with garlic rubbed, buttered, seeded sourdough...

 

 

 

 

Once again, we're roughin' it in the Santa Cruz mountains, sfprankster style... :yahoo:

Up in your area(Connecticut, Rhode Island, Mass) is where I was originally introduced to steamers.

Never cared much for clams other than sauce on fettucini, but I think I could eat your garnish all by itself! Now give me a bucket of steamed mussels w/garlic butter in an Irish pub with a couple of brews & I'm in Heaven.

Cherrystone? A larger variety than the Manilla clams. I can get those out here as well. The Manilla clams were $11 for 5lbs, to good to pass up the deal.

The broth from this recipe makes an amazing base for fettuccine with clams. That is, if you don't use the bread to soak it all up beforehand. :tongue:

 

Mussels, bbq oysters are both favorites around here. I'm missing my Dungeness crab fix due to El Nino causing an algae bloom up and down the west coast. :frown:

Now you're making me hungry, SFP!!:drool:drool

 

Those Clams are making me :drool !!!

 

I haven't had any clams for awhile, but I went by the Bar that I get them at now & then. They always have them Steamed with crackers for 99 cents or $1.25 per dozen. I noticed a couple days ago the sign out front said $1.35. I can go that way when I get my truck inspected next week----Think I'll have to stop. Only place I can get 4 dozen Steamed Clams & 3 Beers for under $10.

Sorry!!!

 

 

I'm jealous, sounds like it's going to be a rough inspection involving beer 'n clams. :icon_mrgreen:

 

 

 

 

 

I did forget the slice of lemon on top, sliced half way and twisted for the pic. :cool:

I haven't seen anything resembling a soft shell clam out here. Next time I swing by our fishmonger, I'll inquire about them.

 

Quahogs on the other hand, I'm very familiar with, from my travels around the northeastern U.S.
