Instant Pot Clams Bordelaise
What is Instant Pot Clams Bordelaise inspired by? I first started making wine steamed clams after falling in love with mixed shellfish steamed in wine at a French restaurant named Le Gavroche in Vancouver which is now, unfortunately, no more. I found a recipe for Clams Bordelaise in The Frugal Gourmet Cookbook by Jeff Smith and started playing around with it so, in a way, this recipe is inspired by both the Pacific Northwest and French cuisine.
It’s easy to steam clams in wine; it’s now made even quicker and easier using an Instant Pot. The technique works with clams, mussels, or other shellfish equally well. Serve it up with some crusty bread (see my recipe here), a good salad and, of course, some wine!
