Steamed Clams with Garlic/Butter/Thyme Broth


Our trip to Costco also granted us a bag of littleneck clams.
I wanted to try something a bit different, so I thought
it would be fun to cook up some clams.
I found a clam and tomato broth recipe, but at the last
minute I altered the plan.  One...it was too 
similar to the recipe I used for the red snapper the other day.
Two..I wanted to use butter and garlic!
I looked at several recipes online, and then just
used the basic components from a few of them.
I used grape seed oil, garlic, white wine, thyme, 
parsley and red pepper flakes.


After about 7-8 minutes of steaming, almost all of the clams opened.
I think we only had about 5 that didn't and therefore I discarded them.
Plated simply in a bowl, to hold the broth, I added
some crusty bread.  Dutchess came up with a saying...
"dip it.  clam it.  stuff it!"
Dip the bread into the broth, put a clam on it, then stuff it into your mouth!!!!


Zachary was a trooper, and he ate about 5 clams, then bailed for 
a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
I can't blame him.  At least he gave them a try.

Dutchess and I loved the garlicy goodness, 
and we ate almost the whole sack.

Feed, the flock was!
