Makes 12 Clams Casino
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

What To Do:

Heat the butter in a skillet using medium heat. Next add the bacon and then saute the bacon until it is cooked. Do not cook the bacon until it is crisp. Next take a slotted spoon and transfer the cooked bacon onto a plate and set aside.

Now add your red pepper into your bacon drippings that are in the skillet. Cook the red peppers for two minutes. Now add the garlic and allow to cook for one additional minute. Remove from the heat and then add the breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, black pepper, and salt and stir. Set this mixture aside for now.

Next pour about two inches of clean water into a Dutch oven, or other type of heavy pot that has a tight-fitting lid. Now bring the water to a rapid boil using high heat. Now add your clams, put on the cover, and then cook for around five minutes, or at least until the shells open up. It is very important to remove as well as drain the clams when they open. When the clams are cool enough to handle you can proceed.

Now twist and then pull the clam shells apart, and then remove the clams. Next place the clams back inside the deeper of the two shell halves. Spread the rock salt on a heatproof baking dish, and set the clams on top of the salt, pressing in slightly.

Divide the breadcrumb mixture evenly over the top of each clam shell, and top with one piece of bacon. Broil on high, about 8 inches from the heat, until the tops are browned and the edges of the bacon are crisp. Sprinkle on the fresh parsley, and serve hot with lemon wedges.
