Beer Steamed Clams on a Gas Grill

Tops Exclusive

Ready in 20 minutes, all you need are clams and beer to make this summer beach favorite.

Yield: 8 servings

Preparation Time: 10 min; Total: 20 min



Heat gas grill. Wash clams one at a time, scrubbing lightly to remove sand from outside.

Set grill-proof pan (camping pan or cast iron pan) on grill rack. Pour beer into pan.

Place clams on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; steam clams 5 minutes. Check and remove any clams that are wide open. Cover grill; continue steaming 5 minutes longer or until all clams have opened wide. Serve immediately.

If a clam doesn't open, discard it. Don't ever try to force clams to open.

A good lager produces great flavor for the clams.

Littleneck clams are best for this preparation.

Please note that some ingredients and brands may not be available in every store.
