  • Heat grill to medium heat.
  • Fill large skillet with water to 1-inch depth. Bring to boil on medium-high heat. Add clams; cover. Simmer on medium-low heat 3 to 4 min. or until clams open. (Discard any clams that do not open.) Drain clams in colander; rinse with cold water to remove any sand. Remove clam meat from shells; chop and set aside. Reserve 36 clam shell halves.
  • Cook bacon in large skillet on medium heat until crisp. Add garlic; cook and stir 30 sec. Stir in crumbs and parsley; remove from heat. Add cheese and oil; mix well. Stir in chopped clams.
  • Pour 1/2-inch-deep layer of kosher salt into 16-5/8x11-7/8x2-5/8-inch disposable aluminum pan. Fill shells with bacon mixture; place in single layer in salt. (The salt prevents the filled shells from tipping over.) Place pan on grill grate; grill 4 min. or until clams are heated through. Serve with lemon wedges.


Prepare using plain dry bread crumbs.
