Mike made steamers for the happy hour clambake – and everyone said they tasted just like what they get at the beach!  Also, a picture of the “cook” and Max 🙂

3 tablespoons butter
1 small white onion coarsely chopped
6 parsley stems
3 cloves garlic lightly chopped
1 bottle dry white wine
2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Melted unsalted butter**
Thick slices of crusty bread

 In a steamer pot or a large kettle, melt butter; sauté onion and garlic until soft. Add white wine and pepper flakes and bring to a slow boil. Add clams and cover pot with a tight-fitting lid and steam over low heat just until clams open, about 5 to 10 minutes. Do not over cook, as clams will become tough and rubbery (discard any clams that do not open).
