    This was amazing! I cooked this up for my husband and I, using fresh Little-necks from the seafood counter and we loved it! Great combination of flavors! Since we dont keep wine in the house, I used veggy broth with a teaspoon of lemon. I'll certainly make this again!  -  27 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I thought this was excellent! I would just suggest more clams and cook them longer.  -  16 Feb 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Amazing! I added 1/2 pound of bay scallops to it as well and it turned out great!  -  24 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
