Clams in green sauce

Almejas en salsa verde


Ingredients for 4 or 5 people:

  • 1.5 kilos of clams
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tablespoon breadcrumbs
  • two tablespoons fresh parsley
  • olive oil
  • a small glass of white wine
  • salt
  • Preparation:

    Wash the clams thoroughly to remove any sand and place them in a pan with a little hot water to open the shells. Once open, remove from the hotplate.

    Fry the finely chopped onion in a frying pan with a little olive oil. When the onion is slightly golden-brown, add the breadcrumbs, the white wine, the parsley (chopped) and the water used to open the clams. Season with salt and leave this sauce to cook for 15 to 20 minutes. Once the sauce is cooked, add the clams, and allow them to cook in the sauce for 4 or 5 minutes.
