Manhattan Clam Chowder instructions

  1. To clean the clams, first discard any that are open or broken. Put them into a bowl with cold water and add some salt. Leave them for about 30 minutes to an hour. Then, remove the clams with your hands and put them into a clean pot..
  2. Heat the Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain (about 2 tablespoons) in a shallow pan and sauté the onion and celery for 5 minutes. Next, add the bacon and cook for 3 minutes..
  3. Pour the stock into the pan and add the potato, leek, tomato and bay leaf. Stir and cover. Cook for 15 minutes, season with salt and pepper. Remove from the heat..
  4. In another pan, without water, cook the clams for 5 minutes until they open. Remove them and separate them from their shells, keeping some aside in their shells for serving..
  5. Lastly, add the clams to the soup and serve in individual bowls with some of the clams in their shells. Add a splash of Picual Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain which will lend it some sharp, peppery nuances. Finish with a sprinkle of chopped parsley on top..
  6. TIP: if you’re serving the dish on a slate, you can use the Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain to give it a bit of luster. Dampen a napkin with some olive oil and rub it over the slate to give it the shine you want..
