Recipe: One Pot Clam Bake
This One Pot Clam Bake dinner is from Everyday Food.
Makes 6 servings
1 1/4 cups dry white wine
6 cloves garlic, peeled
2 large shallots, quartered and peeled (root end left intact)
1 1/2 pounds small red potatoes
Red-pepper flakes (optional)
6 ears corn, shucked and halved
5 dozen clams, scrubbed
2 lemons, quartered
1 pound shell-on extra-jumbo shrimp (16 to 20)
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano leaves
1. In a 12-quart stockpot, bring wine and 3/4 cup water to a boil. Add garlic, shallots, potatoes and 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon red-pepper flakes, if using; cover and cook 8 minutes. Be sure the pot has enough liquid. Add corn, clams and lemons; cover and cook until clams have opened, about 10 to 12 minutes. Discard any clams that do not open. Add shrimp in a single layer, cover, cook a bit, turn off heat and let sit until shrimp are opaque and cooked through.
2. With tongs transfer shellfish and vegetables to a serving platter, setting lemons aside. Pour broth into a bowl and whisk in butter, parsley and oregano. Scrape flesh from half the lemons into broth, discarding skins. Serve shellfish and vegetables with remaining lemons and broth for dipping.
