Recipe for family meals :

Steamed Clams in Wine with Chorizo

It is many years since Hub-UK was first launched. It has been created from recipes contributed form all over the world, from professionals and amateurs alike. A great many of the recipes do not have any details as to who sent them in or from where they came. It would be a shame not to share them with you for this reason alone.

This is one such recipe. If you know where it originated, or perhaps it is even yours, let me know and I will add the necessary credits and acknowledgements.

"The most indispensable ingredient of all good home cooking - love, for those you are cooking for" ~ Sophia Loren.

Ingredients

1 medium onion, chopped
1 yellow bell pepper, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds

2 tablespoons olive oil
3/4 cup dry white wine
2 lb littleneck clams (2 inches wide), scrubbed
1/4 lb dried Spanish chorizo (spicy cured pork sausage) links, cut into 1/4 inch dice
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro

Method

  • Cook onion, bell pepper, garlic, cumin, and salt in oil in a 4 to 6 quart heavy pot over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are softened, 7 to 9 minutes.
  • Stir in wine and bring to a boil.
  • Add clams and chorizo, then boil, covered, until clams open, 7 to 8 minutes. (Discard any clams that are not open after 9 minutes.)
