The easiest clams casino recipe using only 5 ingredients and one sheet pan. The perfect elegant appetizer to serve at a party or a quick light meal for a busy weeknight.
Wash the clams and carefully shuck them. Alternatively, ask your fishmonger to shuck them for you (see notes for tips on shucking). Place opened clams on a large sheet tray.
Add a sprinkle of finely chopped shallot to each clam and a grind of fresh black pepper, followed by a pinch of panko breadcrumbs, and finally top with a piece of bacon.
Place in broiler for 8 minutes or until bacon is crispy.
Serve immediately with lemon wedges
