Okay, maybe you’re nervous about cooking seafood at home, but trust me when I say, don’t be! A big pot of clams is so easy, and it only takes about 10 minutes from start to finish, so it’s one of the fastest ways to dive in.
Sarah’s Tip of the Day:
You only need a few ingredients for this meal. Start by sauteing some sliced garlic with red pepper flakes and chopped oregano. Toss in some halved cherry tomatoes, then add littleneck clams (make sure they’re well scrubbed!) and some wine or water. While they cook, broil up some rustic bread. In minutes, you’ll have perfect clams with plenty of broth and toast to soak up every drop.
