  7. Let the clams cook until they open (no more than 5 minutes).

  9. In the same frying pan, pour the remaining olive oil, add remaining garlic and as soon as the oil is hot, add the shrimp.
  10. Season with salt and the chopped chilli pepper and fry the shrimp for about 2 minutes (don't over cook them).
  11. Add this to the spaghetti and stir everything.
  12. Sprinkle with the rest of the chopped coriander and serve immediately.
