Do you see the broth in the bottom of that bowl?! It’s a delicious tomato-based broth flavored with smoked bacon, onions and garlic. When the clams are in the process of steaming, their juices cook out into all of that goodness, too.
Crusty French bread is definitely a MUST with this dish!
I’ve served this meal numerous times over the years and it never fails… I always get asked for the recipe.
This recipe was originally published in August 2015 and I wanted to bring it back in all its glory with new photographs.
Another great thing about this recipe is that everything’s prepared in ONE POT for easy cleanup. Doesn’t get much better!
This recipe calls for 3 dozen little neck clams so it yields 3 hearty servings as a meal, or you can serve it as an elegant appetizer for a larger crowd before dinner (3-4 clams per person).
Hooray for easy and mouthwatering recipes that everyone thinks you spent an eternity preparing! Enjoy!
