This recipe is simplicity itself. If you live on the East Coast or somewhere where you can get great fresh clams, you must try this. It is one of the very best mariscos.
12 freshly shucked littleneck clams or Manila clams on the half shell
New Mexico red chile powder or ancho chile powder (but not the spice mix called chili powder)
3 limes, each cut into 4 wedges
Sprinkle each clam with a pinch of chile powder. Serve with the lime wedges and squeeze a bit of lime on each clam before eating.
