  1. Wash the clams under fresh water, shuck them  and leave the fruit on the half shell.
  2. In a bowl, add your ingredients and mix well until the oil has been fully absorbed by the bread crumbs. The bread will look uniformly wet.
  3. Add salt and pepper as desired.
  4. Place all the open clams in a baking sheet and with a teaspoon put the breadcrumbs in each clam until the clam is completely covered.
  5. Bake at 500F for 5-7 minutes, then put under the broiler for 1 minute to brown.
