Manila Clam Milk Soup

This is a comforting milk-based soup packed with the essence of the Manila clams and a touch of garlic.

Manila clams
about 80 g
100 - 150 ml
Soup stock granules
1/2 teaspoon
Olive oil
a little
Garlic (finely chopped)
1 teaspoon
White wine (or sake if you don't have any wine)
50 ml
Black pepper or parsley
a little


1. Put the olive oil and garlic in a pan, and sauté over low heat, taking care not to let it burn.
2. When the garlic is fragrant, add the clams and white wine and cook briefly over high heat. Cover with a lid and steam cook over low-medium heat.
3. When the Manila clams open up, remove the lid and add the milk and soup stock granules. Cook over low heat until it's just bubbling, taking care not to let it come to a full boil.

Story Behind this Recipe

I received a lot of Manila clams as a gift. They're delicious steamed in sake or in pasta, but I was wondering if I could cook them in another way.
