4 tbsp  butter
1 tbsp  pimentos
2 tbsp  shallots, chopped
1 pinch  black pepper
1 pinch  salt
3 piece  raw bacon slices
24 each  Clams, mixed species, raw, small
  1. In a small bowl, mix together butter, pimento peppers, shallots, ground black pepper and seasoning salt.
  2. Form the mixture into a ball shape, and securely wrap with plastic wrap. Place in the freezer approximately 30 minutes, until firm but not solid.
  3. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until browned, but still tender. Drain and cut each slice into 8 pieces.
  4. Bring a medium pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add clams and cook for 15 to 20 seconds or until open. Drain and rinse.
  5. Preheat the broiler.
  6. Arrange clams on a medium baking sheet. Top each with 1 piece of bacon. Distribute equal portions of the butter mixture onto each clam atop the bacon.
  7. Checking often to avoid burning, broil the clams 2 to 3 minutes, until the butter mixture has melted and bacon is crisp.
