5 tablespoons butter

1 1/4 cups thinly sliced green onions

1 large shallot, finely chopped

1 1/4 cups chopped fresh cilantro leaves

1 cup dry vermouth

1 cup dry white wine

1 cup vegetable stock

12 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper

4 dozen littleneck clams, scrubbed

Salt and freshly ground cracked black pepper


  1. Melt 4 tablespoons butter in large pot over medium heat. Add green onions and shallot and cook 3 minutes. Add 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro and next 6 ingredients. Increase heat to high; bring mixture to boil. Add clams and cover pot. Cook until clams open, shaking pot often, about 7 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer clams to 6 soup bowls (discard any clams that do not open). Boil remaining liquid over high heat until slightly thickened, about 1 minute. Whisk in remaining 1 tablespoon butter. Season with salt and pepper. Pour sauce over clams. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup chopped cilantro and serve.
