Steamed clams with garlic.

Sussie Wyshak, San Francisco

1 teaspoon butter or margarine

2 medium-size (about 3/4 lb. total) onions, thinly sliced

1/4 to 1/2 cup chopped garlic

2 medium-size (about 3/4 lb. total) firm-ripe tomatoes, cored and chopped

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves

1 teaspoon pepper

1/8 teaspoon cayenne

1 cup dry white wine

3 dozen clams in shells, suitable for steaming, scrubbed

In a 5- to 6-quart pan, combine butter, onions, garlic, and 1/4 cup water. Stir often over medium heat until liquid evaporates and onions are limp, about 10 minutes. Add tomatoes, paprika, thyme, pepper, and cayenne to pan; stir. Cook, uncovered, 5 minutes. Add wine; bring to a boil.

Discard gaping clams that do not close when tapped. Add clams to pan, cover, and simmer until they pop open, 10 to 15 minutes. Ladle into wide bowls; discard clams that don't open. Makes 3 or 4 servings.
