Sheet Pan Clam Bake - This ONE POT clam bake is so easy, it's practically EFFORTLESS! With potatoes, corn, mussels, clams, shrimp, chorizo and so much more!

You know I couldn’t come back from Louisiana without a clam bake recipe.

Also.

Is it clam bake or clambake?

I haven’t been able to figure that out just yet.

If there is an official clam bake spelling, let me know.

But.

Back to the recipe.

As always, you need one giant sheet pan.

Because we have a ton of goodies here.

Potatoes, corn, mussels, clams, shrimp, chorizo, red onion, lemon halves and a boatload of Old Bay seasoning.

If you need more Old Bay seasoning than the recipe states, I wouldn’t hold it against you.

    This was Damm delicious! I had my doubts because it was made in the oven, but I was wrong. So flavorful! The only problem I had was that the clams didn’t open as quick as the muscles. I left it in a little longer but then the muscles were a little over cooked. I substituted spicey filet mignon hotdogs for the sausage and dairy free butter spread for the butter.. Still fabulous and I will definitely make again. Big hit with the family!!

  2. Love it was very good and easy to make

  3. I made this last Sunday and it was sooooooo delicious…my guests loved it…made two pans!
    !!

  4. Can this be done with shell-on shrimp? Peel-and-eat shrimp is so much fun!

  5. What size sheet pan do you recommend?

  6. This looks delicious. Two questions:
    1)Any suggestions for chorizo alternatives, I am not sure if it is readily available where I live and if so, it may be out of my budget, but I have access to a good fish monger. I can get Mexican fresh chorizo, but I was thinking kelbasa like is used in Frogmore Stew aka Low Country Boil (which, now that I think of it can probably be done as above.
    2)As noted above, i am sort of on a limited budget. Am I correct that a sheet pan is a bit deeper than a cookie sheet?

    Just happened upon your site, going to poke around. Cheers

  7. clambake is an outdoor social gathering at which clams & other seafood (often w chicken, potatoes & sweet corn) are baked or steamed traditionally in a pit, over heated stones & under a bed of seaweed

    a clam bake is a traditional method of cooking seafood, such as lobster, mussels, crabs, and clams usually by steaming over layers of seaweed

  8. Can this be done on the grill?

  9. I do something similar but I boil my potatoes and corn in beer and old bay. It adds quite a bit of bite to an already delicious meal.

  10. Wow!

    It’s like having a big pan of goodies. Every item in the pan is so colorful, bringing the dish to life. I need to go get my plate now…haha!

  11. I love this! We live in the Seattle area and frequent a restaurant called the Crab Pot. Their seafood boils contain very similar ingredients as your recipe. It’s delicious, but it’s pricey! It’d be great to make something like it at home.

    I’ve been watching your site for a while and have enjoyed a number of your recipes. I will have to try this next. Thank you so much, Chungah!

  12. I love this! I’ve never tried finishing off a low country boil on a sheet pan before but I like the idea of getting a little oven crispiness in with the boil. Definitely trying this one out!

  13. Gorgeous! Everything works so well together in that pan (:

  14. I’ve made another of your sheet pan recipes that called for the corn to be cut in pieces lengthwise. Is there a secret to cutting the corn without squishing it all up?
    Love the sheet pan recipes and that Okd Bay seasoning!!!
