Ingredients

20 ea. Razor clams

2 Tbsp. olive oil

3 Tbsp. butter

½  cup Leeks, whites only (minced)

¼ cup red bell pepper (chopped)

3 cloves garlic (minced)

1 ⅓ cup Panko breadcrumbs

½ cup Pancetta (rendered)

2 tsp. oregano (chopped)

2 tsp. parsley (chopped)

1 tsp. paprika

2 Tbsp. olive oil

 

Directions

Bring a pot of water to a boil. Drop in clams and just as they open, shock them in ice water, about 10 seconds. Tear off one side of the clam shell and discard. Run your finger along the underside of the opposite side to disconnect the clam. Rinse any dirt or debree, and place the clam back in the half shell.

In a large pan on medium high heat, add the next 5 ingredients. Season with salt and pepper. Once caramelized, about 10-12 minutes, cool and set aside.
