Start off the white clam sauce by cooking some shallots and garlic in olive oil in a rondeau pot over low heat for 1 minute.


Add in the fresh clams and stir to combine and then place on a lid and cook for 6-8 minutes or just until the clams begin to open up.


Next, deglaze with some white wine and cook over medium-high to high heat until the clams are fully open for about 3-4 minutes.


Finish by adding in the chopped and whole clams all in juice, along with salt, pepper, and parsley, and cook for 1 to 2 minutes over low heat minutes.
