Scott Ure's Clams And Garlic

Recipe from: Scott Ure
Servings: 4

So simple, but so good - steamed clams served in their own liqueur. Serve with a crusty Italian bread, or over pasta.

50 small clams in shell, scrubbed
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup white wine
2 tablespoons butter
½ cup chopped fresh parsley

Wash clams to remove any dirt or sand.

In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic; sauté for 1 minute, or until tender. Pour in the white wine. Boil until wine has reduced to half its original volume.

Add clams, cover, and steam till clams start to open. Add butter, cover, and cook till most or all of the clams open. Discard any that do not open. Transfer clams and juice to 2 large bowls. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve.
