Buttery Garlic Steamed Clams

As the name suggests, the clams are cooked with a mixture of garlic, butter, essential olive oil, parsley, with lemon juice. It’s really simple but absolutely delicious.

It’s my summer ritual to visit the beach, enjoy a few of the fresh sea food and shellfish at these restaurants by the ocean.
