Clams and all kinds of seafood, Or according to the French the Fruit of the sea “fruit de Mer”I love!
If you have the pleasure of living close to the sea you know what I’m talking about!
Fresh seafood with a little Ouzo or a nice glass of white wine and it’s perfection!
I can enjoy the moment by myself, this way I can take it all in and sometimes this is all you need! Very therapeutic indeed!
Other times a good friend will enhance the moment no dought!
Here is my recipe for a delightful dish of seafood!
You will need!
3 dozen small hard-shelled clams-scrubbed well, this recipe is for 2
¼ cup olive oil
1 onion sliced
2 cloves garlic
½ cup chopped parsley
½ cup red wine
½ cup prepared tomato sauce
¼ cup water
Salt, pepper and a touch of sugar
½ cup feta crumbs
Here is what to do
In a heavy pan with cover, add the oil and sauté onion and garlic until transparent.
Deglaze with the wine, add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 3-4 minutes.
At this point add the clams and cover.
Heat has to be moderately high, cook for 7 minutes or until clams are open.
They will open with the steam
Discard any that did not open after 7 minutes, they are not eatable and will never open!
Place them on a platter, and keep them warm. Make sure the sauce is nice and thick if not, cook a few more minutes and pour over clams!
Serve with nice bread, because the sauce is delicious…
The fish that we have with this recipe is a slice of white fish with the skin, and we make sure that our fish is patted dry, seasoned with salt and pepper and fried in olive oil until skin is nice and crisp.
You can use, bass, grouper, snapper to name a few, and these are great for frying and searing.
