Description

This simple recipe for Clam and Seaweed Soup requires just five ingredients and is ready in just 35 minutes, making it a great meal option when you are in a bit of a hurry. A little planning ahead is required as you need to allow the clams to soak in saltwater for at least 24 hours in the refrigerator. This recipe walks you through the process of creating your own seaweed and clam broths that serve as the basis for this clam soup. Serve with crusty bread to dip.

Ingredients

350 grams clams (in their shell)
1/2 cup seaweed (dried)
1 tablespoon butter
1 garlic cloves (finely diced)
1/2 liter water
crusty bread

Directions

1The day before, set the clams in cold, salted water to soak for 24 hours refrigerated.
2The next day, cover the seaweed with hot water for 5 minutes. Pour out the water. Repeat.
3Set the seaweed in boiling water for 10 minutes until tender. Reserve both seaweed and water.
4In a pot that has a lid you can use later, melt the butter and add the diced garlic.
5Once the garlic is tender, add in the drained clams and the 1/2 liter of fresh water. Raise the heat and add the lid to the pot.
6Let the clams open and release their juices. After a few minutes, start checking the pot for open clams and remove them to another container to they do not overcook.
7Line a colander with cheesecloth or coffee filters and set it over another pot. Strain the clam broth.
8Pour the clam broth into the seaweed pot. If possible, fish out the pieces of garlic from the colander and add them too to the pot.
9Heat up the seaweed and clam broth. Once hot, turn off the flame and add the clams back in to warm up.
10Serve immediately with crusty bread as an accompaniment.
