This dish made the best Sunday dinner! It was a cold, rainy day and I felt like some comfort food. Quick and easy to throw together, it certainly didn’t disappoint.

Linguine Clams

Serves 4
Comfort food with a zesty lemon cream sauce.


  1. 2kg Clams in Shells
  2. 300g Linguine
  3. 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  4. 1/2 Tbsp Crushed Garlic
  5. 1 cup White Wine
  6. 1 Lemon (juiced)
  7. 1 cup Heavy Cream
  8. 3 Tbsp Chopped Parsley
  9. Salt & Pepper


  1. Use a vegetable brush to give the clams a quick scrub under some fresh water, so as to remove any dirt or loose broken shell that could end up in your dish.
  2. Set clams aside for later.
  3. On the stove, cook the linguine in a pot of boiling water for approximately 7 minutes.
  4. While the linguine is cooking, add the olive oil and garlic to a large pan/skillet and on a medium high heat cook for roughly 1-2 minutes.
  5. Add the wine and lemon juice.
  6. Add the clams and allow them to steam in the wine broth for about 5 minutes.
  7. While the clams are steaming the pasta should be done. Remove from the pot and drain.
  8. Once the clams have finished steaming add the linguine and cream.
  9. Add the parsley, salt and pepper.
  10. Combine and allow to cook together for a minute and then remove from the stove and enjoy!
