02/10/12 - Butter Clams

A friend of ours dropped by with a bucket of butter clams. We had never had these before, so we followed his recipe and sliced open each clam, then placed them open side down in a hot, buttery pan and weighted them down with a cast iron skillet. Then we added the usual garlic, salt and pepper. The results were magnificent.

Just add mass and gravity

And you get great clam strips
