Ingredients
 
 

  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • ½ onions very finely chopped
  • 500 g Fresh clams
  • 50 g Serrano ham
  • 2 cloves Garlic finely chopped
  • 100 ml Fino sherry
  • 1 handful fresh flat-leaf parsley roughly chopped
  • 1 loaf Crusty Bread to serve

Instructions
 

  • In a medium pan with a lid, heat the oil and cook the onion for 5-7 mins to soften. Rinse the clams in a colander and discard any that are opened and will not close with a sharp tap. Add the ham and garlic to the onion and cook for 1 min.
  • Add the clams to the pan with the sherry, bring to the boil, cover and cook for 4-5 mins until the clams have all opened (discard any that haven’t). Serve immediately, sprinkled with parsley.
  • Make sure to have some crusty bread to mop up all the juices.
