Be sure the clams are all tightly closed when you purchase them.
Wash the clams and soak them in fresh water for about 1 hour. Drain.
Heat a 12-quart kettle and add the olive oil. Sauté the garlic and

along with the remaining ingredients except the roux. Cover and cook
at medium-high heat until the shells are all opened wide. Discard
