How to Get a Steamer Really Steamed!

The simple way to cook a clam.

  • Place steamers in a pot so that the clams are half way up the side of pot.
  • Add 1/4 cup of water.
  • Cover, turn the heat on high, and steam.
  • Once the pot is steaming vigorously, check the pot. If the top layer of clams is fully opened, they’re done.
  • Put steamers and broth in separate dishes, serve with a side of melted butter.
  • Open the shells, dunk in broth, then in butter, and ENJOY!
