New England Clam Bake Recipe You Shouldn’t Miss
You pretty much just toss all of the ingredients in a pot. Then steam all the ingredients at once, allowing the ingredients to absorb all the flavors in the pot.
- 1 cup cold water
- 2 cups dry white wine
- 2 1/2 tbsp. Old Bay seasoning
- 1 tsp. coarse sea salt
- 4 garlic cloves, crushed
- 1 red onion, chopped
- 2 lb. potatoes, halved
- 2 lobsters
- 2 dozen Manila clams
- 4 ears fresh corn, cut into four
- small bunch of tarragon or parsley, chopped
- 2 sticks unsalted butter, melted
- crusty bread
- 6 lemons, cut into wedges
- Add the water, wine, Old Bay, garlic, and salt into a huge stockpot and bring it to a boil.
- Add the onion and potatoes into the pot first, cover, then cook on medium/high heat for 15 minutes.
- After that, add the lobsters over the potatoes. Then cover the pot and cook for 3 minutes.
- Next, toss in the clams and corn and continue cooking for 8 to 10 minutes. You’ll know the clams are done when they’ve opened.
- Remove the pot from the heat and drain.
- Empty the contents of the pot onto a table lined with newspaper or butcher paper, then to a large platter.
- Sprinkle everything with fresh herbs and serve with melted butter, lemon wedges, and toasted bread of your choice.
