Hi! I'm the submitter of this recipe. Just wanted to say that I only add 1 cup or 1 1/2 cups of water. After cooking the onions, garlic,..etc, add the clams and stir to mix all the ingredients together, then add the water/flour mixture and stir constantly until the sauce thickens. If you desire a lighter version, then add more cooking water (personally, i like it pretty thick). I always strain and freeze the remaining cooking water, so i can use it later in my stews, soups, etc...). Hope you like it!!
Was pretty good. I may attempt this again.
This is an excellent recipe, and I realy enjoyed last night (as a tapa dish). One modification: I do not add too much water to the pan to steam the clams, only a thin layer of water to prevent from burning the bottom of the clams. The clams will start loosing liquid very quickly, and this will be enough to make a rich sauce. If you need more liquid, then add it after adding the thickener- this way you wll never go wrong with the amount of liquid in the sauce! Thank you for the recipe!
Fabulous flavor! The only problem I had was that the sauce didn't really thicken. I think I may have used too much water when I boiled the clams, and I put all of that water into the sauce. Next time I will use less water to boil the clams. However . . . I did save the broth in the freezer for when I make a chowder. Delicious! Thanks for the recipe!
i found it easier to do step #2 first, then add the water and boil the clams -making it a one pan meal.
Delicious and delicate flavour. This is my favourite type of recipe, simple and elegant. My boyfriend and I enjoyed this with a fresh loaf of crusty bread and bottle of white wine. Clams are relatively expensive here so I had to substitute 1/2 of them with shrimp, it was still very good.
I tried this recipe and it came out great!
