Want to add seafood to your Thanksgiving meal? Make Clams Casino.

Posted by

Italian chef Lidia Bastianich stopped by the studios to answer phone calls on the Thanksgiving Hotline. A listener asked Lydia about the best way to make clams casino. Lydia loves clams casino -- "they're one of my favorites," she said. She suggests shucking fresh clams (for easy shucking she says to put them in the freezer for 45 minutes before you shuck them). Post-shucking, she said to add a little of piece of roasted pepper, 2 pieces of bacon, a pinch of butter and some chopped parsley. Put clams on a baking pan, put a little olive oil and wine and bake for 375 degrees. It won't take long to cook. "[The clams will turn out] clean, beautiful and delicious. Clams with crisp bacon...who wouldn't like that?" said Lydia.
