White Clam Sauce
This is a very rough recipe of how I make a white clam sauce:
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/2 cup white wine
3 cans minced clams, undrained
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
salt and pepper to taste, if desired
Heat butter and oil. Add garlic and saute until fragrant. Add wine and crushed red pepper. Add clams, along with their juices. Simmer about 10 minutes. Add lemon juice and parsley and season to taste. Serve over your favorite pasta.
I talked about this recipe HERE.
