Clam with Cherry tomatoes, Bacon and White wine

Ingredients

  •  1000 grams clams
  • 1/4 cup onion
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 5 strips smoky bacon
  • 3 tbsp coriander/ flat leaf parsley
  • 350 ml white wine(i use Sauvignon Blanc)
  • Black pepper
  • Salt

Instructions:

I must say that fresh clams and lobster are seasonal in the Indiasubcontinentnt. Summer is already here and it’s really going to be tough to get them. So, I wanted to have them so badly while they are available in the market.  These are small clamps which require some amount of effort in cleaning them. But at the end TRUST ME, You will love it and definitely not regret it.

Scrub & Wash the clamps to get rid of the dirt and sand. Make sure you identify and remove the open ones as they are not good anymore. You must soak them in clean water for 30 mins to an hour. This helps remove the sand from inside the clamps.

Put back the same pan on medium-low heat, add chopped onions and chopped garlic. Cook till onion becomes translucent and avoid overcooking. This might take 60 to 90 seconds.
