Start by steaming the clams in two cups of water seasoned with a half a lemon,two bay leaves and a pinch of old bay seasoning,about five minutes and they should open. If any did not,throw them out,they're dead. When done remove the clams and save the shells for stuffing.Reserve the liquid.
To a large bowl add the chopped clams with the juice from one container.Add the chopped parsley,sauteed garlic,carrots and shallots,spices,roasted peppers,one and a half sticks melted butter and herbed stuffing. Mix together well.
Using a tablespoon fill each half shell generously smoothing over the surfaces when done.Garnish each clam with grated cheese the paprika,baste with butter while baking in a 350 pre-heated oven for twenty minutes or so,serve immediately with fresh lemon wedges. Enjoy!! :)
