  • 500g clams
  • 1 shallot
  • 10cl single cre am
  • 10cl wine vinegar
  • 1 lemon
  • butter
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley
  • Pepper
  • Salt


Soak the clams in a large volume of water for 2 hours. Change the water 2 or 3 times.

Rinse and drain the clams. Cook them on high heat in your TEFAL saucepan until they open up. Leave them in a colander but keep the cooking water.

In your TEFAL saucepan, after the Thermo-Signal has become red, melt a knob of butter and brown the chopped shallot. Deglaze with the wine vinegar until almost completely evaporated.

Deglazing is to pour a little water, or another liquid, at the bottom of your pan still hot where you just cooked an ingredient. It is a way to transform cooking juices into a flavorsome sauce.

Pour the filtered cooking juice from the clams. As soon as it boils, turn the heat down and add the cream. Thicken for a few minutes and filter.

Pour it a second time in the saucepan, add a little salt and pepper, and a tablespoon of chopped parsley. Leave it to simmer on low heat.

Place your calms on your serving dish. Pour the sauce on them and mix well. Chop a little bit of parsley on the top.
