200 gr white wine*

1 tbp salt

1 tsp black pepper

20 gr fresh cilantro

How?

  1. Put clams in a separate bowl, cover them with water, add 1tbs salt.
  2. Put cilantro into the bowl chop for 3 seconds on speed 5 or until chopped and set aside.
  3. Put garlic into the bowl chop 5 seconds on speed 6 to chop. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with spatula.
  4. Add olive oil, bay leaf, butter und 100 gr white wine stir for 5 minutes at 100º C on speed 1 without measuring cup.
