Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
In a saute pan over high heat, add the oil and allow to heat. Then add the sausage and cook for 2 minutes, stirring throughout the process. Next, add the celery and onions, again cooking for 2 minutes. Then deglaze the pan with the wine. Next, add the lemon juice, then the clams, breadcrumbs and parsley. Cook for 2 minutes, and then remove from the heat. Next, stuff the clam shells loosely with the prepared stuffing. Place in the oven and cook for 8 to 10 minutes.
During cooking, prepare the sauce. In a bowl, whisk together the butter and hot sauce, mixing well. After cooking the clams, finish with the prepared butter sauce and serve.
