Awesome! Made this on a whim because the clams looked great and we were having people over. Turns out, I didn't have parsley, but used cilantro and basil instead...fabulous! All but a couple of the kids loved them, even the newbie (to clams). I would suggest using a little more wine so that there is a little more sauce to go around.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut prosciutto into strips. In a large frypan, heat oil over medium heat; fry prosciutto until crisp, about 2 minutes.
  2. Remove to paper towel to drain.
  3. To the pan, add garlic, half of the parsley and the hot pepper flakes; fry for 1 minute. Add wine; bring to boil over medium high heat, add clams, cover and steam until clams open, about 5 minutes. Discard any clams that do not open.
  4. Sprinkle with prosciutto and remaining parsley.
  5. Ladle clams into small bowls and offer plenty of crusty bread to soak up the delicious broth.
