This dinner was amazing. We loved the addition of the clams to this. The tomato sauce was flavored just right to complement the seafood.
Made this for dinner for my BF and he loved it!!Scaled it down to one person and made everything as written.Thanks for the recipe!!!
Very nice. I added some white fish at the same time as the mussels (clams), and some chopped red chilli and capers just before serving. mmmmm.....
