Okay, So i have to admit.... I was a little hesitant to make this... I mean how good can these ingredients really be thrown in together??? well, It's freaken awesome!!! nice light meal! Loved it, Will certainly make again!
YUM!! Made this for the family tonight, and it was a hit with everyone! My husbands eyes widened with the first bite, and my 3 yr old nearly licked his bowl clean. I can't wait to make this again! Modifications (which I hate to do trying a recipe for the first time...) I used shallots instead of vidalia onion (because I didn't know what that was), and I added a red pepper. Next time I'll add asparagus too!
Living in Savannah, we usually have clams readily available, but last night the only thing they had at the local grocer was mussels. This sauce was just as fabulous with mussels instead of clams. Way to go!
