Your New Favorite Way to Cook Clams: Wood Roasted Clams Recipe

One of my favorite gifts from the sea are fresh clams.  I love clams prepared in so many different ways from a classic Linguine with White Clam Sauce dish to a Spicy Clam Pizza.  So when we were approached with a Wood Roasted Clams recipe by Chef Brian Massie from Hearthstone Kitchen & Cellar located at Red Rock Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, I felt it was not only worth mentioning but had to giving it a try.

Don’t take our word for it, get the ingredients and try it for yourself.
