1. Preheat the grill to high.
2. Melt the butter in a small, heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and 2 teaspoons colombo powder and sauté until very fragrant and the garlic is softened but not browned, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and taste for seasoning, adding colombo powder and pepper as necessary the mixture should be highly seasoned.
3. If you have a fish or vegetable grate, preheat it on the grill grate for 5 minutes, then arrange the clams on it. Otherwise, arrange the clams directly on the grate. Grill until the shells open, 6 to 8 minutes.
4. Transfer the clams to serving plates or a platter, discarding any clams that did not open. Spoon a little of the colombo butter into each shell and serve immediately.
Serves 4 to 6 as an appetizer, 2 to 3 as an entrée
Note: Clams are graded by size, littlenecks being the smallest. For best results, do not use clams wider than 2 inches across for this recipe, or they will be too tough.
