  1. Place clams and enough water just to cover them into a saucepan with a tight fitting lid. Cover tightly and bring to a boil over high heat; steam until the clams open, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain clams, reserving the water.
  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and onion, cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 3 minutes. Pour in white wine and increase heat to high. Season with saffron, red pepper flakes, and vegetable bouillon, then pour in the cooking liquid from the steamed clams, and bring to a boil.
  3. Stir together flour and water until dissolved. Pour into the boiling sauce and stir until thickened. Season to taste with salt if needed. Add the clams in their shells, and toss until coated with sauce. Sprinkle with chopped parsley to serve.

This is an excellent recipe, and I realy enjoyed last night (as a tapa dish). One modification: I do not add too much water to the pan to steam the clams, only a thin layer of water to prevent f...

Fabulous flavor! The only problem I had was that the sauce didn't really thicken. I think I may have used too much water when I boiled the clams, and I put all of that water into the sauce. N...

i found it easier to do step #2 first, then add the water and boil the clams -making it a one pan meal.

Delicious and delicate flavour. This is my favourite type of recipe, simple and elegant. My boyfriend and I enjoyed this with a fresh loaf of crusty bread and bottle of white wine. Clams are rel...

I tried this recipe and it came out great!

I did make one little change. I used bottled clam broth instead of water. WOW this was excellent ! I'll make this again and again.

I enjoyed this recipe. Definitely start with step # 2 as AmazonTo Andes suggested and just barely cover the bottom of a tall pot with water as Patty suggested, the clams will release plenty of ...
