Steamed Garlic Clams

We always wanted to try new recipes, and this Steamed Garlic Clams recipe did not disappoint! Paired with our Il Fusti Garlic Olive Oil, the steamed clams had a buttery texture and strong savory bite. We definitely think you should try these. 


700ml hot, low-salt chicken stock

75g diced chorizo

1 clove garlic, thinly sliced

A pinch of saffron strands

2 small heads of spring greens, finely shredded

1kg small live clams or cockles, washed well

2 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped

1 tbsp Il Fusti Garlic Olive Oil

5 Lemon wedges, to serve


  1. Place the stock, chorizo, garlic, and saffron in a large pan and bring to a boil. Add the greens, cover, and cook for 2 mins until completely wilted.
  2. Add the clams, cover, and cook over high heat for 4-5 mins until every clam has opened. Stir in the chopped parsley.
  3. Using a slotted spoon, divide the greens and clams between large, shallow bowls then ladle over the broth. Drizzle with Il Fusti Garlic Olive Oil and serve with the lemon to squeeze over.
