Pour ¼ cup water into a 5-7 quart pan. Add clams, cover and boil over medium-high heat just until shells open (5-10 minutes); remove clams as they open. Discard unopened clams. Serve warm in wide bowls. Strain cooking liquid and serve in small bowls as a dip along with melted butter and lemon wedges.
Or remove steamed clams from shells and use in other recipes. For a great appetizer, try mixing ¼ cup salad oil, 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese and 3 cloves minced garlic. Pour on loose clams in half shells arranged on a baking dish. Broil 4” from heat, just until cheese begins to melt (about 5 minutes). Sprinkle with parsley and extra cheese. Serve with wooden picks.
Lightly coat clams with flour. Over medium-high heat, add 1 tablespoon salad oil and 1 tablespoon butter. Place shucked clams without crowding, in pan and cook, turning once until browned (about 1 – 1 ½ minutes total): add more oil and butter as needed. Lift out clams on to a towel paper lined-plate, season with salt and pepper and serve.
