Question: Do I need to soak clams before cooking?

Before cooking, check for any broken shells or clams that dont close when tapped – these are dead and shouldnt be eaten. The clams then need to be soaked in heavily salted (enough salt to taste like sea water) cold water for 20 minutes, in which time the clams will naturally filter out any grit and sand.

What is the best way to steam clams?

Put the clams in a pot or a pan with a lid. Add a bit of liquid to get things started, but just a splash. Melted butter, wine, or chicken stock will work. Steam the clams on medium heat, with the lid on, for 5 to 7 minutes.
