3-4 dozen live Florida hard-shell clams, rinsed

2 large Florida tomatoes, diced

1 cup Florida cherry tomatoes, halved

1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon Florida seafood seasoning blend

1 small onion, sliced thin

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

3 cups low-sodium vegetable or seafood broth

2 tablespoons fresh herbs (rosemary, thyme, oregano)

2 tablespoons fresh garlic, minced

2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped

1 lemon, juiced (plus more for garnish)

Sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste


Preheat a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the butter and sliced onions to the saute pan. Cook onions for about 5 minutes or until just caramelized. Add 1 tablespoon of the seafood seasoning, garlic, chopped herbs and diced tomatoes. Stir ingredients, add the broth and Florida clams. Cover saute pan with a tight-fitting lid and let cook for 7 to 10 minutes. Remove the lid and discard any clams that have not opened. While the clams are cooking, in a small bowl combine the halved cherry tomatoes, chopped basil, 1 teaspoon seafood seasoning and lemon juice. Stir ingredients to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning with sea salt and fresh ground pepper. To serve, use a slotted spoon to add the clams to a platter, or serve them in the saute pan they were cooked in. Garnish the clam dish with the Florida cherry tomato mixture. Serve warm with crusty bread.
