Linguine with white clam sauce
The sauce is quite simple. It has garlic, green onion, clams, clam juice, lemon juice, heavy cream, white wine, parsley, basil, chili flakes and salt.
I have never seen clam juice when I was living in Japan. (Maybe because I did not cook much when I was in Japan.. ) This is very useful for cooking. I love it.
Making of this sauce is quite simple.
Saute garlic and green onion in the pan with some chili flakes. Add clams.
Add white wine, clam juice, heavy cream and lemon juice.
This is really good and I don't add too much heavy cream to this so its quite light. Also, with lemon juice it is tangy and fresh!
This dish is something which one of my roommate used to make for us (other roommates and I) sometimes. He was such a great cook and he used to cook lots of things when he had days off. That was when I first moved to the U.S. so some of the things he cook were pretty new to me and it was so much fun to eat great food which I was not familiar with.
One of his speciality was Chili Con Carne. His Chili Con Carne was the best! I have not talk to him for a long time and I don't know what and how he is doing now but I hope he is doing well.
