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.

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.

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.
