This recipe serves 6. 1 person found this recipe to be flavorful and satisfying. It will be a hit at your Spring event. It is a good option if you're following a dairy free diet. If you have bread, garlic cloves, olive oil, and a few other ingredients on hand, you can make it. To use up the olive oil you could follow this main course with the Sauteed Banana, Granolan and Yogurt Parfait as a dessert.
Heat oil in a large heavy pot over medium heat.
Add chorizo and cook, stirring often, until some fat has rendered and chorizo begins to crisp, about 4 minutes.
Add potatoes, spring onion whites, and garlic. Cook, tossing often, until potatoes are crisp-tender, 10-12 minutes.
Add wine and cook until reduced by half, about 5 minutes.
Add 2 1/2 cups water and continue to cook until potatoes are just tender, 5-8 minutes longer.
Add clams and half of onion greens, cover pot, and cook, stirring occasionally, until clams have opened, 8-10 minutes (discard any clams that do not open).
Divide clam mixture among bowls. Top with remaining onion greens and serve with toast.
Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Muscadet, Riesling
Chardonnay, Muscadet, and Riesling are my top picks for Clams. Buttery chardonnay is great for scallops, shrimp, crab, and lobster, while muscadet is a classic pick for mussels, oysters, and clams. If you've got some spice in your shellfish, a semi-dry riesling can balance out the heat. The Foley Estate Winery Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay with a 4.3 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 27 dollars per bottle.
