    Directions

    1. Three hours before cooking, soak the clams in cold water with a pinch of salt to clean out any sand.
    2. Change the water every hour (at least 2 times) or until the bowl has no sand residue in the bottom. 
    3. Heat olive oil over medium heat in a medium-sized pot, dutch oven, or wok.
    4. Add chouriço and cook until oil starts to turn red, approximately 2 minutes.
    5. Add onion and garlic, and cook until the onion softens, approximately 3 minutes. 
    6. Add the clams and pour in the wine.
    7. Bring the liquid to a simmer and cover the pot. 
    8. Simmer until the clams open, approximately 6-8 minutes. (If any of the clams do not open, toss them out).
    9. Remove the clams to a serving bowl and cover to keep warm.
    10. Reduce the remaining liquid by half, then pour over the clams.
    11.  Garnish with parsley and serve with crusty, toasted country bread.
