Ingredients
Method
 
  • - 2 heaped tablespoonfuls of finely chopped garlic
  • - 1 large yellow onion, finely chopped
  • - 1-2 fresh chillies, finely chopped
  • - A large handful of flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped
  • - 1/2 a lemon
  • - Some olive oil
  • - 500g good-quality dried spaghetti
First of all, soak clams in salted water for a few minutes. Drain and pick through the clams, removing any impurities and barnacles. Discard the bad and nasty-smelling ones, obviously. Cook the spaghetti or whatever pasta you'd be using according to packet instructions in a large pan of salted boiling water. When cooked al dente, drain the pasta in a colander. To cook pasta al dente, simply cook pasta 1 minute less than packet instructions. And using salted water to cook pasta is a MUST. While the pasta is cooking, heat a splash of olive oil in a large saucepan and cook the onions. Then add the garlic. Once the onions have turned a little translucent, throw in the clams and prawns with the white wine or Chinese Cooking Wine. Cover with a lid and give it a good shake. Cook for a couple of minutes until all the clams have opened. Discard the ones that remain closed. Toss in your cooked pasta and stir around, adding a little more olive oil if necessary. Squeeze some lemon juice and season to taste with salt and pepper while tossing the pasta around. Serve immediately. To garnish and add a little more flavour to the pasta, sprinkle the chopped chilli and parsley all around and over the pasta.
