Pressure Cooker Spicy Steamed Clams – Healthy & Delicious
Steaming clams is a quick and easy way to cook them. They are healthy, delicious, and even more so if they are cooked in a pressure cooker.
A pressure cooker is a pot that cooks food at high pressure. This means that the food is cooked much faster than other methods of cooking. The steam inside the pot becomes so hot, that it cooks the food without any need for added oil or fat.
The benefits of using a pressure cooker are many. It saves time, energy, water, and money when compared to other cooking methods such as boiling or frying. It also preserves nutrients in the food better because it does not require much water to cook it and because it cooks at a high temperature which kills harmful bacteria faster than boiling or frying would do.
The Secret to Making the Most Amazing Pressure Cooker Spicy Steamed Clamps
One of the most popular ways to cook clams is by steaming them with a pressure cooker. I have found that steaming clams in a pressure cooker yield the most amazing, tender, and succulent clams.
To make this dish even more flavorful, I add some spices which add an appetizing aroma to the dish. This blog post will provide you with all the steps that you need to take in order to make these delicious, healthy, and spicy steamed clams.
Step 1: Fill your pressure cooker with water and bring it to a boil on high heat. Add in your favorite spices such as garlic powder, ground black pepper, dried oregano, and dried thyme. Bring it back down to medium heat and add in your cleaned clams .
Step 2: Place your clams in the pressure cooker. Seal it and cook for 3 minutes without any steam escaping. Then, allow it to release steam slowly for up to 10 minutes before serving.
