  • 12 Ounces linguini
  • 12 Lge fresh whole clams
  • ¾ Cups heavy Cream
  • ¾ Cups Dry white wine
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Chopped flat leaf parsley
  • ½ Lemon ,Juiced
  • 4 Garlic Cloves, chopped
  • Pecorino Romano to taste
  • 2 Cups clam juice, from clams
  • S & P to taste
  • Can of chopped clams
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    My stars.(Chopped Can of clam is optional, if you cant find fresh clams, use two small cans of chopped clams.)

    Step 2

    Before we start cooking, take the fresh clams and put them in a bowl of cool water for 30minutes. The clams will clean itself out by discarding the sand from inside the shell.

    Step 3

    After the 30 min is up we will place each clam under running water and scrub the clams to remove any grit or sand on the clam

    Step 4

    There are a few ways to shuck a clam. The method I use is and easier way ( well in my opinion)to open the clams instead of using a sharp knife and piercing its muscles. Preheat your oven to 450f

    Step 5

    Place all your clams on a cookie sheet with sides and bake them for 5-6 minutes or until all the clams have partially opened. (This is my second batch of clams that are in the oven😉)

    Step 6

    Cool the clams a couple of minutes. The shells are hot.

    Step 7

    Now it's time to pry the clam meat from the shell. Make sure to use a sharp knife. Pry them over the cookie sheet. This in turn will catch all the clam juice

    Step 8

    See me do it.

    Step 9

    Save all the clam juice do not discard it. We will be using the clams liquor to flavor this dish. Remove the clam meat and set them aside we are chopping them up.☺️

    Step 10

    Now let's make sure there is no sand in the juice. Take a sieve and set it over a bowl or jar. Slowly add the juice and discard whatever is on the sieve.

    Step 11

    Like so

    Step 12

    There should be about 2 cups worth of clam juice. Set aside

    Step 13

    We will now go on to the clam meat to chop each one into bite size pieces

    Step 14

    Step 15

    While we are chopping take a large pot of water, set it over medium heat and cook the linguine per the box's instructions. I like my pasta al dente

    Step 16

    When you're done chopping your clams set them aside and start chopping the garlic.

    Step 17

    Like so 😏

    Step 18

    Let's start cooking, take a large frying pan and set it over medium heat. Add the butter

    Step 19

    And the olive oil to the butter

    Step 20

    To this add the garlic. Stir fry it a few seconds until the butter and oil mixture is fragrant.

    Step 21

    add the fresh chopped clams to the garlic butter mixture

    Step 22

    I'm adding more chopped clams.( I used canned)

    Step 23

    Stirfry the clams a little bit

    Step 24

    Next up add the white wine

    Step 25

    The lemon juice too.

    Step 26

    Let this cook for a few minutes over medium heat

    Step 27

    Now add the reserved clam juice. Save 1/4 cup in case it gets too dry at the end.

    Step 28

    And the heavy cream

    Step 29

    let this simmer until over medium heat.

    Step 30

    Immediately after add the linguini. Cook this until creamy over medium heat

    Step 31

    Add some grated cheese to taste, toss to coat.

    Step 32

    Chop up some fresh parsley

    Step 33

    Add it to the pasta

    Step 34

    I reserved some clam juice(optional) I just like it saucier. I added more cheese as well!🤪

    Step 35

    Dinner is served. Enjoy with a nice crusty piece of garlic bread😊. Adapted from community Table. Eat immediately!
