Steamers

Neither Kevin nor I is a mad steamer enthusiast.  We both ate them as kids, and although we certainly don’t dislike them, they’ve never made our marine top-ten list.  Yesterday, though, I finally went clamming for steamers (soft-shell clams) rather than quahogs (hard-shell clams).  It was rough going, and I only came home with about a dozen.

This took me over an hour!

Kevin steamed them up, and melted a little butter to go with them.  We each took one, swished it in the clam liquor, dipped it in the butter, and ate it.  We had the same reaction: these aren’t the steamers we remember.  These are tender and sweet, with necks that are just chewy enough to make it interesting.  We may have to revisit the top ten.

    Glad you guys are on board with the steamers! What’s not to like?
    BTW- you look very fashionable in your color coordinated shirt and basket float!
