|Grilled Clams with Lemon Butter|
|Grilled Clams Ingredients|
- 4 pounds clams, rinsed
- 1 stick unsalted butter
- 4 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 lemon
- 4 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
- 4 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
Preheat your grill. Rinse your clams in cool water and drain. Prepare the lemon herb butter by melting one stick of butter in a medium pan over medium heat. When the butter is melted add the garlic, cooking for about 1 minute. Add 2 tablespoons of the parsley and 2 tablespoons of the chives. Squeeze the juice of half a lemon into the butter mixture and set aside. Place the clams directly on the hot grate of your grill. The clams will pop open one at a time. When they open they are done cooking.

|Pour the Herb Butter over the Clams|
Sprinkle with the remaining parsley and chives. Squeeze the other half of the lemon over the clams and toss to distribute the butter and herbs throughout. Serve in bowls with slices of crusty bread for sopping up the tasty broth and butter.
