Grilled Clams with Herb Butter

Grilled Clams with Herb Butter

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon chopped scallion
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 24 littleneck clams, scrubbed

Recipe Preparation

  • Mix first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl until well blended. Season herb butter to taste with salt and pepper.

  • Build a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill, or heat a gas grill to high. Place clams on grill rack and cover grill with lid. Grill until clams just open, 6–8 minutes (discard any that do not open). Use tongs to transfer to a platter, being careful to keep as much juice in the shells as possible.

  • Dot clams with herb butter; let stand until butter melts. Serve warm with lemon wedges alongside for squeezing over.

We always triple the amount of herbs and apparently I read scallion as shallot. We had a bowl with the herb butter and just tossed the clams as they came off the grill. Delicious but messy. Good thing grills are outdoors:)AnonymousBrooklyn06/28/19
