Clams In White Wine With Garlic, Onions And Tomatoes
(Almejas A La Marinera)
What You Need:
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • ˝ cup finely chopped onions
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely crumbled white bread, trimmed of crusts
  • ˝ cup peeled, seeded and finely chopped tomatoes (see Huevos a la Flamenca)
  • 1 hard-cooked egg, the yolk sieved and the white finely chopped
  • 2 dozen small hard-shell clams, washed and thoroughly scrubbed
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
  • 1 lemon, cut into 6 or 8 wedges

  • How To Cook:
    1. To make the sofrito heat the oil in a heavy 8- to 10-inch skillet, until a light haze forms above it. Add the onions and garlic. Stirring frequently, cook for 5 minutes or until the onions are soft and transparent but not brown.

    2. Stir in the bread, tomatoes and sieved egg yolk. Cook for about 5 minutes, mashing and stirring with a spoon until most of the liquid in the pan evaporates and the mixture becomes a thick, smooth puree. Set aside.

    3. Place the clams hinged side down in a heavy 10- to 12-inch skillet, pour in the wine and bring to a boil over high heat. Cover tightly; reduce the heat to low, and steam for 8 to 10 minutes or until the clams open.

    4. With tongs or a slotted spoon, remove the clams from the skillet and place them on a deep heated platter. Discard any clams that remain closed.

    5. Strain the liquid in the skillet through a sieve directly into the sofrito. Bring to a boil, stirring; taste and season with salt and pepper.

    6. Pour the sauce over the clams, sprinkle the top with the egg white and parsley and garnish the platter with the lemon wedges. Serve at once.

    To Serve: 2 as a main course, 4 as a appetizers
