chopped fresh parsley
2 (6.5 ounce) cans
minced clams, with juice
2 (16 ounce) cans
salt and pepper to taste
This is a great clam sauce recipe. I had it with salad and home made bread.
I used scallops last night because I didn't have the clams and a 8 oz bottle of clam juice and it was still
good only a little more fish taste.
simmer the clams 45 minutes?? that can't be right, maybe 4 to 5 minutes?
Good and quick and easy. I added some basil and it turned out excellent!
So simple you cant mess it up, tastes wonderful. I was wondering what to do with the can of minced clams I had in the cupboard. Used fresh tomatoes and dried parsley bc its what I had. Yummy.
So good and so easy.
This recipe was just ok the first time I made it. I made it a second time with a few changes and it came out great. I used 1/3 cup olive oil, 3 cloves of garlic instead of 2. Two finely chopped green onions. I used the juice from 1 can of clams and discarded the juice from the other. I added 1 cup of white wine and and a few dashes of red pepper flakes. Let the sauce simmer for about ten minutes so it can thicken a bit (from the added wine. DO NOT cook it for 45 minutes. The family loved it!
Good recipe. It's not something to rock your world(or get you tons of compliments) but it's good and quick for a night when you have no idea what to make. I usually have the ingredients on hand so I may make it again.
--- By the way the prior reviewer is right. No way do you want to cook clams for 45 minutes unless you want little chunks of rubber in your sauce.
This was ok, a little bland and too thin.
