Winter is here! Skip the soup and have clams instead!
2 lbs. fresh manilla clams, washed
3 tbsp butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small white onion, sliced thin
1 12oz can of PBR (any lager will do)
1 small lemon
2 roma tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1 jalepeno, chopped fine
big pinch of salt
Heat butter in a saute pan. Cook garlic and onions until translucent. Add beer and bring to almost boiling. Cut a few thin slices of lemon, quarter them, and add to the pot with remaining lemon juice (no seeds!). Add tomatoes, cilantro, jalepeno, and clams. Cover and cook for ten minutes. Serve with your favorite baguette (to dip in the broth) and enjoy!
