We have a bed on our front porch at the cottage which overlooks the lake. (you know – the porch with the plaid floor). It’s the perfect spot to read and relax on a summer afternoon.
I was lounging and browsing through an old Martha Stewart Magazine and came across a recipe that steamed clams and “coins” of corn in the same pot.

I thought I’d like to try something similar but I wanted to cook everything on our charcoal grill instead. It turned out great and made a wonderful “vacation at the lake” meal.
Clams and Corn
For two of us, I cut three ears of uncooked corn into 1” rounds and marinated them in some white wine as I prepared everything else.
I washed 2 dozen clams, and halved and seeded 4 jalapeno peppers (sweet peppers would be just as good). Everything went onto the hot, charcoal grill at the same time.
Mike did the grilling and he brushed melted butter and a little of the wine from the marinade on the corn as it cooked. He turned both the corn and the peppers after 5 minutes or so.
The clams are done when they open up wide; everything was ready in about 10 minutes. Simple and delicious!!!
