Here is a great appetizer to start a seafood dinner. Two dozen average clams will serve 4 people sparingly, or two people rather lavishly. Clams Casino is a natural to accompany a good, dry Champagne.
To begin with, shuck your clams, leaving them on the half shell. Put clams on a bed of rock salt in a flat pan or pans big enough to hold them without crowding. Mix together:
Put about 1/2 tsp. of this mixture under each of the clams.
Cut bacon into 24 pieces. Partially cook in a frying pan, drain and reserve.
Mix together and sprinkle evenly over the clams. Season clams with a dash of:
Put a piece of bacon on each clam and heat in a 450 degree oven until bacon is crisp and clams sizzle around the edges. Serve with a garnish of lemon or lime slices and more Tabasco Sauce.
