    1. 1
      Soak the clams in cold water for an hour to help remove any sand or grit inside them.
    2. 2
      Heat the olive oil in a medium-sized, heavy-based saucepan until hot but not smoking hot.
    3. 3
      Add the garlic and onion and reduce the heat. Fry, stirring, for 2-3 minutes.
    4. 4
      Add the chili and bay leaves and fry, stirring now and then, for a further 2-3 minutes, until the onion has softened.
    5. 5
      Drain the soaking clams and add to the saucepan. Increase the heat to high and pour in the sherry.
    6. 6
      Cover the pot and cook, covered, for 2-3 minutes, shaking the pot once or twice.
    7. 7
      Uncover the saucepan, check that the clams have opened and, using a slotted spoon, remove the clams from the pot. Place the clams in a warm serving bowl, cover and set aside.
    8. 8
      Meanwhile, briskly cook the sherry in the saucepan until reduced by a third. Stir in the paprika.
    9. 9
      Pour the sherry sauce over the clams, sprinkle with parsley and serve at once with lemon wedges.
