Try to use fresh minced clams if possible. You won't believe how easy this is. And you won't believe the oooos and ahhhhhhs after you serve it.

prep time 10 Min
cook time 15 Min


  •   2 lb
    minced clams (fresh if possible)
  •   1/2 c
    extra virgin olive oil
  •   1/2 c
    butter (1 stick)
  •   4 clove
    garlic - minced
  •   4 Tbsp
    chopped dried parsley (use more if using fresh)
  •   3 tsp

How To Make

  • 1
    Drain clams - reserve 1 1/2 cups liquid (if you don't have that much, just add water to make 1 1/2 cups or you can use bottled clam juice) - set aside. Heat butter and oil - add garlic - saute until golden - do not brown the garlic - it will become bitter (approximately 6 minutes). Stir in parsley, salt and clam liquid. Bring to a boil - add clams and simmer an additional 3 minutes.

    Pour over cooked pasta of your choice - linguini and spaghetti work very well.
