Simple Beer Steamed Clams
This summer meal couldn't be any easier.
- 1 (16-ounce) can lager beer
- 3 pounds littleneck clams, scrubbed
- Lemon wedges, for serving
- loaf crusty bread, warmed, for serving
Add the beer to a large pot and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
Add the clams to the pot and cover.
Steam the clams until they open, about 6 minutes. Using a slotted spoon transfer the clams to a large serving bowl.
Serve clams with bread. Garnish with herbs like fennel, chives and parsley if desired.
