Clams with Sherry and Serrano Ham
Sweet clams and salty ham are a perfect combination, and this tapas dish or sharing starter can be made in minutes
- 1 tbsp Olive oil
- ½ Onion very finely chopped
- 500 g Fresh clams
- 50 g Serrano ham
- 2 cloves Garlic finely chopped
- 100 ml Fino sherry
- 1 handful Parsley roughly chopped
- 1 loaf Crusty Bread to serve
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.
