Sounds Delicious & once I get home I am going to make this for sure! Saldy I am @ school with NO stove top!!!
These are very good. I used about 1 kilo of mussels instead of clams. I think what was missing for us was some fresh herbs thrown in at the end. Other than that a definite keeper. Thanks for posting.
