It’s been a really long time since I posted a recipe on here and I’m glad I’m finally doing so with such a worthy recipe– Mom’s Clam Linguine (although now that she’s a grandma it’s known as “Lala’s Clam Weeny” by my girls).
This has always been a Hamlin family favorite and I’m thrilled it’s now a Luckhurst fave– it’s definitely Bailey’s favorite and even managed to beat Spaghetti Bolognese in the favorites list of my four year old.
It’s simple and amazing. There is a catch though– buying these clams in the UK is tricky! I used to have to import them from the states or from the American military base food shop in Germany where our friends live (“sorry honey, we can’t have your favorite dinner until we buy more clams from Germany”) but luckily Amazon came to my rescue (they always do!) and they can be purchased online. They aren’t cheap on Amazon but once you taste this and fall in love, you’ll realize the cost is worth it since it’s as tasty as a restaurant meal! As you can see in the last photo, it is perfect for a dinner party and goes very well with white wine!
So here you go, Mom’s/Lala’s Clam Linguine:
