I just recently celebrated my 45th birthday. For those of you that do not know me, on my birthday I like to give back and celebrate by cooking for a group of friends some where special. This year, as it was last year, we did this in Sisters, Oregon. One of the days was going to be Seafood Extravaganza. So I brought up some fresh seafood and we hit the kitchen. First up was this dish, and it was spectacular. Todd brought about 20 pounds of chorizo for his stuffed mushrooms (which was 19.5 lbs too much) so I said to myself, grab some of that and add it to this dish!
Heat Chorizo in a skillet and cook, until done at high heat. Remove Chorizo from pan to a plate with a paper towel to remove excess grease. Clean skillet and add olive oil and onions, thyme, oregano, and rosemary, and garlic to skillet and sauté for 4 minutes over medium heat.
In a microwaveable bowl combine white wine, chicken broth, tomatoes, black pepper, and chorizo. Microwave on high for 1 minute.
Add the bowl of white wine mixture to the pan, and bring to a boil. Once boiling add the clams.
Cover and cook for five minutes, remember to discard any clam that does not open. Then also to remember to turn around with a slotted wooden spoon and fend off any black ninjas trying to get to your clam dish.
Plate the clams, you can add chopped parsley for looks, but I really didn’t have the time with these vultures all over my grill. Serve with toasted bread.
This is an incredible tasting dish that is full of flavor with a little heat.
This is a dish that I would give one of my top 10 seafood recipes. Adding the Chorizo was a good gamble and it paid off.
The next dish up was The Silver Fox Chili Bean Crab dish. You can find it here https://huntingchef.com/2014/01/05/dungeness-crab-with-black-bean-sauce/. This would also make my top 10 seafood recipes.
One of the best two power punches. We also did bbq’d oysters which is coming up later this week.
Hope you give this a try, it will not disappoint.

Do you think I could substitute razor clam meat instead of steamers?
That is a great question. I do not see why you wouldn’t try? My only concern is that the razor clam meat would get rubbery. Did you try it?
