This is such a delicious combination of flavors. Opening up that packet and smelling the aroma of clams, wine, chorizo, garlic and butter. It is like a little slice of heaven. These would be perfect for company as they are easy to build, easy to serve and easy for cleanup. You could make smaller packages for an appetizer even.

    I adore grilling in foil packets – it makes everything so much easier – easy cleanup, and you can personalize what you put in each one. These clams look absolutely delicious and I hope you’ll swing by my recipe link party The Yuck Stops Here sometime after 8pm Tuesday evening and share them with my friends there. I’m sure they’ll be a hit. You can always find us on my blog Hot Momma’s Kitchen Chaos. HUGS

    You had me at ‘chorizo,’ Tara!

    I love that you made clams on the grill … and I’m sure any BBQ guest would have a great time putting their packets together!

    Putting this on my summer to-make list ASAP!

    Why hello hello! It’s so nice to see you over here from Sunday Supper :) I love the feel of your blog already. And this recipe! I’ll be honest: I’ve never really eaten clams, except in clam chowder (and usually we’d spit those out–my mom is allergic to shellfish and the rest of us really aren’t used to the taste!) However, I can totally see myself making this recipe if I was looking for an easy way to impress. Thanks for sharing it–and it’s great to meetcha!

    Funnily enough, I just had mussels with chorizo and salsa at a restaurant here in Cape Town and it was one of the best things I’ve ever eaten- I’m sure these clams are even better! I hadn’t even thought of attempting them at home :) Thank you for a great recipe!

    There is something fun about grilling packs of goodies in foil. These clams with chorizo look like a fun thing to serve at a party! I’m going to save this one for our upcoming BBQ.
