How To Cook


Soak clams in salted water for a couple of hours to remove any sand. Discard any clams that do not close when you tap on them. 


Heat the olive oil in a medium sized skillet. Cook the onion, garlic and chili pepper on medium low heat until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. 


Add the flour and stir until combined. Add fish sauce (if using) and the wine. Stir until smooth. 


Bring the heat to high, then add the clams and 2 tbsp of parsley. Mix well, cover and cook for about 4 minutes. After 4 minutes or when clams open, adjust seasoning of the sauce with salt and pepper. Move clams to bowls and cover with sauce, discarding any clams that didn’t open. 


Sprinkle with remaining parsley. Serve with lemon wedges and a good crusty bread to sop up the sauce.
