Believe it or not, this foodie has never eaten steamed clams before. I have a fondness for mussels when it comes to that sort of thing.
So yesterday, on a whim, I picked some up at Hooked; the chic Leslieville fishmonger.
They were as dead nuts simple to make as their black shelled cousins and I even convinced Shauna to eat them. So yeah, they were pretty good.
I went simple with some garlic, tomatoes, sage, thyme and a bit of lemon zest. 7 minutes later I had a pound of perfectly cooked clams to accompany our Sunday feast.
Plus, I can boil the shells for Audrey to add to her collection. Everybody wins!(Except for the clams, of course).
