Well, I think I’m back!! The past couple of days I have FINALLY felt more like myself. Geez, who’d have thought getting rid of my gall bladder would send me into a metabolic nightmare? Crazy!!!!! I wish I had never had it removed.
On with the recipes….some of these were things that I made over the past couple of months and just getting around to posting.
I am NOT a clam lover by any means but DH and DD are so I decided to make them. In fact, I don’t eat them at all.
This is a super easy way to cook them and, according to DH and DD, very tasty. There’s very little fuss ~ which is good because I don’t even like looking at them, LOL!
Clams for Those Who Hate to Cook Clams
1 pound fresh clams
Scrub the clams with a stiff brush. Throw away any clams that are not shut tight.
Melt about 2-3 tbsps. butter in a large skillet. Add a couple of cloves of minced garlic.
Add clams (do not crowd ~ you may have to do this more than once) and swoosh around so the shells are buttery/garlickly.
Add about 1/3 cup white wine to the pan and cover with a lid. Let steam for about 4 minutes.
Remove the lid and take out the opened clams. If there are a few that have not opened, I just toss them since there is a good chance they are bad ~ I don’t take chances with seafood. Do not overcook or they will become like shoe leather ~ or so I’m told.
I serve with extra garlic butter.
