1 cup shallots, minced

1.5 tbsp garlic, minced

1.5 cups dry white wine

1.5 tbsp parsley, minced

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

Place the clams in a ice/water bath with a tsp of flour for a few minutes.  Scrub off sand and grit. Preheat the grill to 450 degrees. Place a cast iron skillet or dutch oven on the grill to preheat. Melt 2 tbsp butter and cook shallots until tender.  Add the garlic and combine until fragrant, but be careful not to burn the garlic.  Add the wine and allow to heat.  Add clams and cover.  Cook on high heat for 5 to 7 minutes until the clams pop open. Add remaining butter, parsley, red pepper, lemon juice and season to taste. Remove from the grill and serve immediately with bread. ENJOY!
