A crust eaten in peace is better than a banquet partaken in anxiety.

Clams Casino

Clams casino is simply the best clam recipe ever. Whenever bacon and butter appear in the same recipe, you know you're in for a treat! Not only is clams casino an easy recipe to prepare, it can be made ahead of time and popped into the broiler whenever you're ready.

Ingredients:

18 medium-sized (about 2 1/2-inches) littleneck clams
2 tablespoon unsalted butter
3 strips center-cut bacon, each sliced into 6 equal pieces (18 total)
3 tablespoon finely diced red bell pepper
3 garlic cloves, finely minced
1/3 cup plain breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon finely grated Parmesan
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
pinch of salt
2 tablespoons chopped flat leaf parsley
lemon wedges
rock salt as needed

Preparation:
Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the bacon and saute until cooked, but not quite crisp. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a plate and reserve.

Add the red pepper to the bacon drippings in the skillet, and cook for 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute more. Turn off the heat and stir in the breadcrumbs, Parmesan, black pepper, and salt. Reserve the mixture until needed.

Add about 2 inches of water to a Dutch oven, or other heavy pot with a tight-fitting lid, and bring to a rapid boil over high heat. Add clams, cover, and cook for about 5 minutes, or just until the shells open. It's critical to remove and drain the clams as soon as they open. Allow the clams to cool until they can be handled.

Twist and pull the clamshells apart, and remove the clam. Place the clam back into the deeper of the two shell halves. Spread the rock salt on a heatproof baking dish, and set the clams on top of the salt, pressing in slightly.

Divide the breadcrumb mixture evenly over the top of each clamshell, and top with one piece of bacon. Broil on high, about 8 inches from the heat, until the tops are browned and the edges of the bacon are crisp. Sprinkle on the fresh parsley, and serve hot with lemon wedges.
