Recipe for:

Clams and Mussels in Salsa Verde Sauce


(Serves 8)

1 kl. Mussels, soaked in clean water for 15 minutes
1 kl. Clams, soaked in clean water for 15 minutes
2 c. Parsely, chopped
1/4 c. Garlic, chopped
1/2 c. Olive oil
½ c. White wine or beer
Salt and Pepper to taste


1. Do ahead of time: soak shells for 15 minutes in clean tap water to let them spit out impurities. Remove beards (hairy tip on the center of the shells) using a scissor. 

2. In a pot of boiling, salted water cook mussels and clams for 10 minutes. Drain. ANY SHELL THAT REMAINS SHUT AFTER BOILING MUST BE THROWN AWAY!

3. In a blender, combine parsley, garlic, onions, olive oil, white wine, salt and pepper. Blend to the consistency of your choice- smooth and fine or creamy and chunky.
