Recipe

Over long holiday weekends I almost always crave New England lobsters and steamers, which is what I would be eating if I were back at home with my family in New Hampshire. So this Memorial Day weekend knowing I wouldn’t be able to find traditional New England steamers (they don’t exist in LA as far as I have looked) and lobster would be crazy expensive, I decided to make some simple and quick shellfish steamed in garlic, butter, and white wine. Not exactly a New England clambake, but close enough that I could get my hands dirty cracking into some delicious seafood, spend time around a table with good friends, and say thank you to all the wonderful service people who we honor on Memorial Day.

Directions

  1. In a Dutch oven (or pan with a cover large enough to fit the shellfish), add the butter, onion, garlic, and thyme over medium heat. Cook for about 5 minutes or until fragrant.
  2. Add the white wine, shellfish, salt, and pepper.
  3. Stir and cover the pot. Let cook for 6-8 minutes until the shellfish have opened up and/or are cooked through. Most shellfish take about the same time to cook. If cooking in the shells, discard any unopened shellfish.

Notes

You can substitute any shellfish you like in the recipe.
