  2. Add wine or vermouth and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes.
  3. Add clams and steam, covered, over moderately high heat 5 to 7 minutes, transferring them as they open with tongs to a serving bowl and reserving cooking liquid. (Discard clams that are unopened after 7 minutes.) Keep clams warm.

  5. Pour sauce over clams and toss to combine.
  6. Garnish clams with herbs and serve with crusty Italian or French bread.
