1 kg clams
4 garlic cloves, minced
A generous bunch of cilantro
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Juice from one lime
Dry white wine (optional)

Heat the olive oil and garlic in a large saute pan.  Add the clams and the cilantro.  Add a splash of white wine, if desired.  Cover the pan and shake a few times during cooking.  When all the clams have opened, top with lime juice.  It’s quite delightful to dip your bread in the juice that’s left at the bottom of the pan.


1 kg de ameijoas
4 dentes de alho, picados
Varios ramos de coentro
4 colheres de azeite extra virgem
Sumo de um limão
Vinho branco seco (opcional)

Num tacho, aqueça o azeite com o alho.  Acrescente as ameijoas e o coentro.  Regue com vinho branco, se quizer. Tape e agite de vez em quando até as ameijoas abrirem.  Regue com o sumo de limão e sirva.  O melhor de tudo é molhar uns pedaços de pão no caldo que fica no fundo da panela.
