Ingredients
  • 24 fresh little neck clams, shucked and on the half shell
  • 4 cups finely crushed ice
  • 1/4 cup plus 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons finely crushed white pepper
  • 1/4 cup champagne vinegar

Put 1 cup of ice in each of 4 large, shallow, rimmed soup bowls, or small, decorative trays and press down gently to make a level bed. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the kosher salt over each bowl of ice. Place 6 clams in their shells on each bed.

In a small bowl, combine the white pepper, 1/8 teaspoon salt, the vinegar, olive oil, and shallots, and whisk to blend. Stir in the caviar.
