  • Clams
  • White Wine
  • Green Onions
  • Minced Garlic
  • Old Bay Seasoning
  • 3 Sticks Butter
  • White wine


  • Allow your clams to spit so to remove some of the grain of sand out of them.
  • Prepare up in a bowl your chopped green onions, minced garlic,  and Old Bay Seasoning to be ready to put in the pot.
  • In a large stock pot dump in your white wine and the seasonings.  I  let this sit for a bit while we seasoned some cod fillets and started up the grill for some oysters.
  • Turn your stock pot on to start the wine and seasonings start to warm up.
  • Dump out your clams into an over the sink and rinse them off one more time.  I put my clams in the pot by hand sometimes you can catch some debris that way too from having dumped out your clams.
  • Once your clams are in your pot drop in your sticks of butter and cover on high.
  • Allow to steam cook for 15 to 20 minutes until your clams have opened up.
  • I allow mine to rest to soak in more flavor too.
  • Serve with melted butter and enjoy!!!
