Yield
Serves 6 (serving size: about 3 clams, 5 mussels, about 2 tablespoons broth, and 1 lemon wedge)

Be sure to use a large, wide pot so the shellfish can cook evenly, then serve them straight from the pot with crusty Italian bread to soak up the broth.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat butter and oil over medium heat. Add shallots, thyme, and garlic; cook until shallots begin to soften, about 3 minutes. Add beer, and bring to a simmer. Add clams and mussels; return to a gentle simmer.

Step 2

Cover pot with a lid, and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook until shells open, about 10 minutes. Discard unopened shells. Serve with lemon wedges and a bowl for the shells.
