1/3 cup olive oil
3 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
1/2 cup minced parsley
1/2 cup minced fresh coriander leaves or 2 T. minced carrot tops

Place clams in a very large, deep kettle, add all remaining ingredients, cover and steam over moderate heat 5-10 minutes (until shells open). Discard any that do not open.
