Twirl your fork in linguine with clams with an Asian-inspired twist! Sake, red-chile sauce and a touch of cilantro make this a delicious pasta dish you can cook in just 20 minutes!
- 1 lb linguine
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic finely minced
- 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 3/4 cup sake (or your favorite white wine)
- 1 cup clam stock
- 1/2 teaspoon red chili paste (add more if you really like kick)
- 4 lbs clams
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup cilantro chopped
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Season with Kosher salt and cook linguine until just al dente. Drain and set aside.
While the pasta is cooking, heat olive oil in a large saute pan over medium-low heat. Add the garlic, salt, and pepper, and saute for about 1 to 2 minutes, or until the garlic starts to turn golden.
Add sake and clam stock and allow the liquid to reduce for about three minutes. Stir in the red chili paste.
Add clams to the pan, cover and let cook for about 8-10 minutes, or until the clams open up. Discard any unopened clams.
Stir in the butter and cilantro. Add linguine to the pan and toss until the pasta is coated in sauce. Serve immediately!
