  • 4 dozen manila or littleneck clams
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 120 grams thinly sliced shallots
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 360 milliliters dry white wine
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Sourdough or other crusty bread, sliced

Special Equipment

  • wok or 30.5 cast-iron skillet


  • 01 Scrub the clams and rinse them in four rounds of cold water to remove any sand and grit.
  • 02 Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat (200° to 260°C).
  • 03 In a wok or 30.5-centimeters cast-iron skillet over direct medium-high heat, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter. Add the shallot and garlic and cook until fragrant and tender, about 1 minute, stirring often. Add the wine and cook for about 1 minute more. Add the clams and cook over direct medium-high heat, with the lid closed, until the clams open wide, 5 to 10 minutes, stirring every few minutes. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons butter, the parsley, and season with pepper. Toast the bread over direct heat, about 1 minute, turning once.
  • 04 Remove the wok from the grill. Discard any unopened clams. Divide the clams and cooking liquid among deep bowls serve right away with the bread .
