One of America’s Favorites – Steamed Clams

August 22, 2022 at 6:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Steamed clams

Steamed clams is a seafood dish consisting of clams cooked by steaming.

In the United States, steamed clams are usually made with small soft-shell clams (Mya arenaria) called steamers, and sometimes with other shellfish harvested and served along the East Coast and in New England.

Hard shell clams, sometimes known as quahogs, can also be steamed. They are categorized by size— the smaller ones are called littlenecks, medium-sized ones topnecks, the larger ones cherrystones, and the largest are simply called quahogs.

The clams used for steaming are usually cooked live. If in a hard shell, the clam should be closed when purchased and should open after being cooked. Soft shell clams are open slightly (agape) while alive. Larger chowder clams are not typically used for steaming.

There are many dishes based on steamed clams. In China, steamed clams can be served with eggs. In Thailand, steamed clams are served with lemongrass, ginger, or herbs. In France, they are often cooked with white wine, onion, garlic, shallots, and butter. Steamed clams are also eaten in Japan (oosari are large steamed clams).

The New England clam bake is a traditional preparation that includes clams layered with other ingredients such as corn, lobster, mussels, crabs, potatoes, and onions in a metal bucket. The layers are separated by seaweed and steamed over a fire outdoors and served family style as at a picnic.

Dish of steamers in Gloucester, Massachusetts

Live clams are rinsed carefully to remove sand and grit and then cooked in a large kettle of water with salt added. Lemon juice, beer, garlic, shallots, parsley, and wine are sometimes used.

They are served with the cooking broth and melted butter. The clam is given a few quick dips in broth to remove any lingering sand before being dipped in melted butter and eaten. Steamers can be held by the siphon or “neck” when eaten. The covering of black skin is pulled away and removed as the clams are ingested.

Steamers are praised by many chefs, for instance Jacques Pépin: “Plentiful and inexpensive during the summer, especially in the Northeast, steamers are one of the great treats of the season.” They are found in shallow waters from the Arctic Ocean to North Carolina, and have been found in Florida and Europe. They can be dug up by amateur clam diggers. Steamers have been transplanted to the West Coast and are available from San Francisco to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. They are sold in tanks and can also be shipped directly to consumers, but their shells sometimes get cracked.

Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week – GRILLED STEAK BURGERS WITH HARISSA MAYONNAISE

This week’s Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week is GRILLED STEAK BURGERS WITH HARISSA MAYONNAISE. To prepare this week’s recipe you’ll be needing Wild Idea Buffalo Sirloin Steaks, Chili Powder, Caraway Seeds, Coriander, Cumin, Salt, Garlic Cloves, Jarred Roasted Red Peppers, Olive Oil, Lemon, and Buns. This Burger sounds and looks incredible! You can find this recipe and purchase any of the Wild Idea Buffalo Products at the Wild Idea Buffalo website. So Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2022! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

GRILLED STEAK BURGERS WITH HARISSA MAYONNAISE
Living in the country, an hour away from the closest grocery, I often substitute ingredients in recipes, which can sometimes lead to a whole new recipe. My rendition of Harissa Sauce is one of those recipes. It’s my new favorite sauce and although it is terrific on everything (including a spoon), it is particularly great on Wild Idea Bison Sirloin Steaks (or any of our cuts)!

Ingredients: (Makes 2 to 4 servings)

2 – 6 ounce Wild Idea Buffalo Sirloin Steaks
1 – teaspoon chili powder
½ – teaspoon caraway seeds
½ – teaspoon coriander
½ – teaspoon cumin
½ – teaspoon salt
3 – garlic cloves
1/3 – cup roasted red peppers (I always keep a jar on hand in my pantry)
1 – tablespoon olive oil
1 – lemon, juiced
2 to 4 – quality buns, brushed with oil and lightly toasted

Preparation:
1 – Rinse the steaks under cold water and pat dry with paper towels.
2 – Using a fine tine fork, pierce the steaks at an angle a few times on each side. This will assist with getting the flavors of the Harissa Sauce into the meat.
3 – Mix the spices, roasted red peppers, olive oil, and lemon juice together in a blender and puree until smooth.
4 – Rub half of the Harissa Sauce into the prepped steaks, cover and allow them to rest for 2 hours before cooking, or make ahead of time and place in refrigerator to marinade, removing 2 hours before cooking to allow steaks to come to room temperature. Reserve and refrigerate the other half of the Harissa Sauce for the mayonnaise.
5 – Preheat grill to 500°. Shake off excess marinade and grill over hot heat for 2 minutes on each side. Remove steaks from the grill, cover, and allow them to rest for 5 minutes.
6 – Slice steaks thin and pile on to toasted buns. Top with Harissa Mayonnaise, recipe listed below. Fabulous!
7 – Roasted Red Pepper Harissa Mayonnaise
This tasty condiment will keep in a sealed jar in your refrigerator for up to a month.

Ingredients:

½ – batch Harissa Sauce
2 – tablespoons mayonnaise
2 – tablespoons cider or rice vinegar
¼ – cup onions, finely diced
¼ – cup cilantro, chopped
1 – Gently mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl with a fork. Place in a sealed jar and refrigerate until needed. Pull the mayonnaise out about an hour before using to let it come to room temperature.

Salmon Sandwiches with Spicy Apricot Sauce
If you’re ready for something a little more exciting than hamburgers and hotdogs, you’ll want to try these fresh seafood sandwiches…

Ingredients
Preparation time: 5–10 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes.

Nonstick cooking spray
Aluminum foil
1 pound skinless Atlantic salmon, cut into 4 square fillets
1 small lemon
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
4 98% fat-free light wheat sandwich buns
4 lettuce leaves (leaf lettuce)
4 tablespoons low-sugar apricot preserves
2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce (Asian style)

Directions
Yield: 4 servings
Serving size: 1 sandwich

1 – Heat indoor or outdoor grill. Spray nonstick cooking spray on a piece of aluminum foil large enough to hold the four fillets. Place fillets on foil and sprinkle with juice of the lemon and black pepper. Grill on foil approximately 5 minutes on each side until cooked through (flesh bounces back when pressed lightly, and juices are milky). Toast buns on grill or use a toaster. Place a lettuce leaf on each of the bottom halves of the buns, then top with one salmon fillet. In a small bowl, stir together apricot preserves and sweet chili sauce, then spoon approximately 1 heaping tablespoon onto each salmon fillet; add the top half of each bun to complete.
