I copied your recipe for me, I haven't had clam sauce in eons and I like the simplicity of the dish. Puffin does give an idea I could chop some tarragon as it is unlikely I would have Pernod in the house. I think it would add a nice subtle accent.
I must say, the said son does a bang up job with chicken on the charcoal grill Whiska. I've always said his dad did the best grilled chicken ever, and when we were invited to dinner at their house, I told him it was every bit as good as his Dad's, we both got a little teary. He even uses his Dad's grill these ten years later. It was one of those precious moments, ya know?

In this neck of the woods we can buy plastic tubs of raw oysters, clams and mussels.
I guess those are the 'cans' I was thinking of. They all do need to be checked for shell bits and grit. I pass all the liquid through a coffee filter and use it of course. I take each piece and give it a cold water rinse too.
I'd read more carefully in future.

I had a feeling that must be what you were talking about Puffin. My canned clams come in the same kind of can as tuna.

I can buy fresh seafood that way too, but then I'd have to use it right away and I can't guarantee that will happen.

+1. Canned is good and is so nice to have on hand for pasta dishes, soups, and casseroles.

That just might be what's for dinner! That and a glass or three of Chardonnay. Had a big late morning breakfast.

Kay, I've added a couple cans of clams and bottled clam juice to my shopping list. Will be making your recipe, it sounds delicious.

Thought I'd put it here too as it's very easy no fuss recipe for a new cook.

" Mom's Linguini and Clam Sauce".

Linguini and Clam Sauce is one of my "go to" recipes as I always keep what's needed for this simple recipe I use on hand.

3 cans minced clams & juice
1/2 cup diced white onion or shallot
1 bottle of clam juice
1/2 cup chicken broth
3 cloves of fresh grated or diced garlic
some chopped fresh parsley
just a few hot pepper flakes
2 TBS butter and 2 TBS olive oil
Parmasain cheese, to serve.

(The clams themselves should be only added to the mix at the last minute, just to heat through or they will be tough.)

Here's how you do it...
Put the water for the pasta on to boil, with lots of salt.

Saute the onion in olive oil and butter till translucent, and add the garlic and let cook just a few seconds, so it doesn't burn. Add the juice from the clams, the bottle of clam juice, the chicken broth and the hot pepper flakes. Simmer for about 10 minutes. Add the parsley and clams just before serving.

Cook and drain the Linguini, and add the clams and sauce.
Would the fat-free Parmesan cheese and perhaps the fat-free low-sodium chicken broth work properly of this recipe? My Uncle Nicu has had his gall bladder removed of him, and he must be careful.

This sounds so very nice! He has received of his appetite now after the infection and he is quite hungry.

I would think so, Cat. Glad Uncle Nicu is feeling better!

Thank you so much! I am glad he feels better also! A grumpy Uncle is never a good thing, yes?

Perhaps I shall prepare this tomorrow. He loves clams!
