Cherrystone Clams Baked with Butter

The serving size depends on how hungry you are!


Ingredients

3 dozen cherrystone clams, opened on the half shells
1/4 c. scallions, finely chopped
1 or 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
4 drops of Tabasco sauce
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
2 Tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
2 Tbsp fresh basil, finely chopped
1/2 pound of unsalted butter, at room temperature
Crusty Italian or French bread.

Preheat the broiler to high - around 500 °.

Combine all ingredients, except the clams, in a bowl. Mix until everything is nicely incorporated.

Arrange the clams on a baking sheet. Spoon the mixture evenly over the top of the clams. Broil for about 1 minute or until the butter is nice and bubbly, but not burned.

Serve immediately, using the bread to get up all the great juices and butter!
