Clams are a great alternative to traditional mussels. The soft meaty flesh is perfect in salads or as simple tapas. The flavour is such that they are best steamed with a minimum of other ingredients.
You will need (serves 4):
1 - 2 kilos of fresh clams
Fresh chopped parsley
How to cook:
1. Clean the clams by rinsing in cold water
2. Place in a large pan with the chopped parsley, a little salt and about an inch or two of cold water.
3. Steam with the lid on for about 5 minutes until all the shells have opened.
