  • 32 littleneck clams on the half shell
  • 110g streaky bacon, finely diced

Preheat grill to high.

1) Place a medium saute pan over medium-high heat, add the bacon and cook until lightly golden brown. Add the garlic and red chilli flakes and continue cooking until the bacon is crisp. Remove from the heat, stir in the olive oil, parsley, and bread crumbs and season with black pepper, to taste.
