1/1 Photo of Angel Hair With Clams
I have looked through a lot a clam recipies. I finally came up with this recipe by combining the most frequent ingredients I saw listed with a couple of my own additions. The end result is a sauce so light it can't really be called a sauce. But it is so incredibly flavorful!

Units: US | Metric
- 1Soak clams in salted water.
- 2Heat oil in pan and saute onion.
- 3Add garlic, chili powder, and oregano to pan and continue to saute for a minute or two.
- 4Add sherry and tomatoes. Bring to a boil.
- 5While waiting to boil, scrub clams. Add clams to pan, cover, and simmer for 6 to 10 minutes. Use a big pan and allow space for the clam shells to open up. Otherwise you may need to add the clams in batches.
- 6While clams are simmering, cook pasta in salted water, al dente, about 6 or 7 minutes.
- 7Drain pasta, toss with a bit of olive oil and parsley and set aside.
- 8Remove with sauce from heat. Clams that have not opened after 10 minutes should be discarded.
- 9This part is based on preference. You may remove clams from shells and add back into sauce, or skip this part and leave clams in shells allowing guest to remove the clams. I prefer to discard the shells before serving.
- 10Melt butter into completed sauce.
- 11Pour sauce over pasta and toss. Serve immediately.
