  • Cook, covered, for 5 minutes.
  • Add 1 teaspoon of sweet Spanish paprika (or spicy), dissolve it, and pour the wine.
  • Cook all together, uncovered, for 7-8 minutes to thicken the sauce as the clams will lose water.

  • Once the clams are open, uncover the pan and let cook several minutes to evaporate some water and thicken the sauce.
  • Sprinkle with finely chopped parsley.
