Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 pound Spanish chorizo sausage, diced
  • 1 large fennel bulb, diced
  • 1 large Spanish onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, grated or minced
  • 1 teaspoon pimenton (smoked Spanish paprika)
  • Pinch crushed red pepper
  • 2 cups clam juice
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 3 dozen littleneck clams, scrubbed clean
  • 4 tablespoons fresh parsley leaves, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • Loaf crusty bread, for serving

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

In a large high-sided saute pan with a lid, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chorizo, cooking until it has let off some of its fat and the oil is colored by its spices, 3 to 5 minutes.

Add the fennel and onions and cook until softened and fragrant, about 4 minutes. Next, add the garlic, pimenton and crushed red pepper and cook for 1 additional minute. Add the clam juice and white wine and bring the mixture to a boil. Add the clams into the broth. Cover and cook until the clams open up, 5 to 6 minutes. Discard any clams that don't open up.

After the clams have opened, add the parsley, butter, lemon zest and juice. Plate the clams with plenty of the liquid and serve with a piece of crusty bread to sop up all the delicious broth!
