A simple but delicious dish with linguine and clams in a piquant chilli garlic and white wine sauce. Itís much easier to make then it may sound and can be cheap when you visit the fish mongers to buy the clams. Great for a week night supper treat. The red chilli chopped gives this dish a light spice with an after kick. The dry white wine based sauce does all the hard work to create a delicious flavor in this dish.

Ingredients

  • 1.25kg fresh, frozen or vacuum packed clams, cleaned
  • 2tbsp olive oil
  • 2 shallots finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • 125ml dry white wine
  • 1tbsp chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 400g linguine

To clean clams hold under running cold water and scrub with a stiff vegetable or nail brush to remove any grit on the shells.

Method

  1. Check the clams and if any are open or have broken shells, tap on the work surface and if they donít close throw them away. Put a pan of water for the pasta on to boil.
  2. Heat the oil in a large shallow pan with a lid. Add the shallots and cook for 3-4 mins. Add the garlic and chilli and cook gently for a minute. Add the wine and the parsley and tip in the clams. Cover with a lid and cook for a few mins until all the clams are open.
  3. Cook the pasta according to packet instructions. Discard any clams that have not opened. Drain the pasta and tip into the clam pan. Toss well together and serve.
