Fresh Clams


56.  Living close to the ocean, avails you to fresh seafood and shell fish.  Every day, we pass one of the best Seafood Restaurants and Seafood Markets in the area...Jordan's Lobster Farms.  Align Center
You can get any type of shell fish
or seafood and they make "the most" awesome 
New England Clam Chowder...I have ever tasted!!!!  

Yesterday, we decided it was a seafood day!!!  
We stopped by Jordans and picked up chowder and fresh clams, littlenecks.
  
My honey is such a great cook and he has a wonderful recipe for Linguine and Clam Sauce.  It is from his Time Life Books recipe collection.  While he was in the Navy, he subscribed to "Time Life's Foods of the World" and read every book and recipe while on a ship at sea.  
We have used these books over and over.
They are a great resource of information.  
His recipe is from "The Cooking of Italy" series and is
"Spaghetti con le Vangale"  or Spaghetti With Clam Sauce
There is also a wonderful recipe for "Linguine with Clams and Fresh Herbs" 
from Bon Appétit,
February 2005 on the Epicurious site as well as several other yummy choices.
This recipe is one that is so very easy yet so delicious.  
Adding fresh clams gives such a wonderful added flavor. 
We used linguine and littleneck clams.
This is definitely a dinner treat! 
So here is the clam sauce...
I just love when they open...
like they are singing!!!  They
were so fresh
.
Linguine con le Vangale...

If you love clams...this is so easy, you have to try it!

"Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day,
teach a man how to fish,
and he will eat for a lifetime."
~ Chinese Proverbs
