Beer Steamers

2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp margarine
5 cloves garlic, diced
1/2 onion, diced
1 1/2 lb steamers (or clams or mussels)
1/2 bottle lager beer (ex. Budweiser, Molson, etc)

Sautee olive oil, margarine, garlic, and onion over medium-low heat in a deep pan or pot. Add steamers and beer, cover, and let steam until steamers open up.

Serves two as an appetizer, with toasted bread to dip into the broth.
