Razor Clams with Chiles and Garlic

Provided by Saveur.com

Razor clams take well to quick-cooked preparations like this one, a popular order at Bar Pinotxo, a tapas counter in La Boqueria, Barcelona's covered market.


  • 5 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3–4 dried chiles de arbol, crumbled
  • 1 1⁄2 lb. razor clams, rinsed thoroughly
  • 1⁄4 cup white wine
  • 1 1⁄2 cups loosely packed flat-leaf parsley leaves, minced
  • Kosher salt, to taste


Heat oil, garlic, and chiles in a 12" skillet over medium heat. Cook, swirling pan occasionally, until garlic is pale golden brown, about 6 minutes. Increase heat to high, add razor clams and wine, and cook, covered, until clams are just cooked through, about 3 minutes. Add parsley and season with salt; toss razor clams to coat with sauce. Transfer clams to a serving platter and drizzle with remaining sauce.

Serves 2-4
