Step 1

Scrub your clams well with a brush first, then place in a bowl of cold water. Move on to prepping the remaining ingredients while they rest. Change the water once or twice, especially if the water begins to look murky or cloudy.

Mince the 5 cloves of garlic and finely chop the large shallot. Also finely chopped the flat leaf parsley (regular parsley is also a fine substitute) and divide in half, yielding two piles of 2 tbsp each.

Grate the Parmesan if you are using it. Most cooks would probably leave it out since it is nontraditional. But if you like it this way, as my family does, then do what's good for the people that are going to be eating it. :)
