Directions

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