Melange Cafe Dirty Rice and Clams

Yield: 6 servings


  • 3 tablespoons soy oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh chicken livers
  • 1/2 cup sliced andouille sausage
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 24 littleneck clams, scrubbed
  • 4 cups cooked long grain white rice
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons Joe's Cajun Seasoning or your favorite Cajun spice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh garlic


  1. Heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken livers, sausage, green pepper and onion. Sauté about 10 minutes or until chicken livers are good and dirty, meaning brown with bits and pieces stuck on the bottom of the pan.
  2. Add clams, rice, chicken stock, seasoning and garlic. Simmer until all moisture is absorbed and clams are open, about 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Serve in a large casserole bowl with rice on the bottom and clams piled on top.
