Portuguese Clam Rice

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Mina in Toronto

My mom taught me how to make this when I was a teenager and I've been making it ever since. This is great to accompany a fish dish.

This was a great side dish. I served it with Portuguese Style Shrimp and a side of Fava Beans. The tomato and red pepper flavour goes great with fish or seafood. Thanks Mina!!
