Clams the way i like them




• 500g clams
• 1 small red onion
• 2 garlic cloves
• 100ml olive oil
• 1 lime
• 1 red chilli pepper
• 1 sprig thyme
• ¼ yellow pepper
• 1 sprig coriander
• 1 spring onion
• Freshly ground pepper to taste


Wash the clams well, rinsing under running water • Place the clams in a small amount of very salted water, without covering them and leave them to soak so they can expel all their impurities • Chop the onion, garlic and chilli pepper and fry in a deep pan in the olive oil and with the sprig of thyme • Season with freshly ground black pepper and add the pepper, chopped into small cubes • Drain the clams and add to the pan, mixing and covering immediately • After 3 to 4 minutes mix again and add the finely sliced spring onion, the roughly chopped coriander and the lime juice • Serve warm, with toasted bread

Tip: For best results, keep a close eye on the clams when they begin to open and don’t let them cook too long
