Directions

  1. Fill a large pot with 2 cups water and bring it to a boil. Add the clams to the boiling water.
  2. Reduce the heat to a simmer and let the clams steam for approximately 10 minutes, until the shells open.
  3. Remove the clam meat from the clams and mince the meat finely.
  4. Break apart the clam shells from their hinges.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  6. In a frying pan, melt the butter on medium heat and add the minced onion.
