Reviewed clams casino royal

Thursday, Apr 24, 2014 on

Pretty good. Got a great trick to keep clams upright instead of all the rock salt: I use mini muffin pans. Each pan holds 12. These were missing the green pepper I love in a casino so I added them.

"These don't make you moan or groan. They don't even make you go hmmmmm. These are ok. Not worth any effort. I suggest to try another recipe. It looks like all the reviewers are adding this and that to the recipe and then rating it. Not a true rating of the recipe, in my opinion."

"Dont waste your time, energy, or money on these recipes. You can find WAY better gratin recipes on this site. The red wine sauce is merely OK. I got good feedback, but it was from someone trying to be nice. I mean, who is going to say, "this sucks" when you go through the trouble of cooking for them. "
