Easy Grillin' Clams
It couldn’t be more simple to prepare clams on a grill. Keep napkins and forks handy, and guests can help themselves to this tasty appetizer or entrée.
36 clams, scrubbed and in fresh water
6 tablespoons melted butter
1. Pour the melted butter into a heat-resistant pot and place it on a cooler section of the grill to keep the butter warm.
2. Place clams directly on the grill, to 6 inches above a solid bed of low-glowing coals. When clams begin opening, turn over with tongs. They are done when they are wide open.
3. Using napkins to prevent burning fingers, remove the clams from the grill and hold over the pot of butter, allowing the juices to drain into the pot. Remove the clams from their shells and dip into butter before eating.
