- garlic : 1 clove (minced)
- lemon juice : 1 Tbsp
- dry bread crumbs : 1 cup
- clam juice : 1 Tbsp
- salt : 0.5 tsp
- black pepper : 1 pinch
- parmesan : 0.25 cup (grated)
Stages of cooking
Take a large pot and fill it with water. Place the pot on fire. As soon as the water boils, add the clams, reduce the heat and simmer on low fire for about 8-10 minutes until the shells open. Cool the clams down a bit and sort out those of them, which have not opened.
Now, remove the clam meat from the inner part of the clams and mince it well. Then rinse the clams, choose 10-12 of them and set them aside.
Pre-heat the oven to 176 C (350 F). While the oven is heating, take a pot and melt butter in it on medium fire. Add minced onion and fry it until it becomes soft. This will take around 3 minutes. Then add garlic and keep cooking for one more minute. Finally, add bread crumbs, parsley, lemon juice, minced clams, and clam juice. Stir the mixture well. If it is too dry, add more bread crumbs.
Stuff the clam shells with the mixture you have just prepared and sprinkle with grated Parmesan. Bake in the pre-heated oven for about 25 minutes until the cheese becomes light brown. Serve warm! Enjoy!
