Real Simple AUGUST 2008

  • Yield: Makes 8 servings
  • Prep time:15 Minutes
  • Other:25 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds small new potatoes
  • 8 ounces Spanish chorizo or kielbasa, sliced
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 12-ounce bottle lager beer
  • 4 bay leaves
  • Kosher salt and pepper
  • 8 ears corn, cut into thirds
  • 2 pounds large shrimp, shells on
  • 4 dozen littleneck clams, scrubbed
  • 2 baguettes, warmed
  • 2 sticks butter, melted

Preparation

Heat grill to high.

In an 11-quart stockpot, combine the potatoes, chorizo, onion, beer, bay leaves, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Add just enough water to cover the potatoes. Add the corn, shrimp, and clams in layers.

Cover the pot. Cook on grill until the clams open, the shrimp are opaque, and the potatoes are tender, 20 to 25 minutes. (Or cook on the stove over medium-high heat.)

Transfer to a large platter and serve with the bread and butter.

Tip: Yep, clambakes are messy -- especially with all that melted butter. Make yours a little tidier by giving each guest a small bowl of butter, poured from a pitcher. After the meal, pass each guest a bowl filled with water and lemon slices to rinse off sticky fingers.
