One of the specialties of Seville's Modesto restaurant is Almejas Negras al Marqués de Villalúa, a wonderful, saucy clam dish cooked in Marqués de Villalúa, a wine from the neighboring province of Huelva. If you can't find this wine, substitute any dry, fruity white.

  1. 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 1/2 pound shiitake mushrooms, stems discarded, caps thickly sliced
  3. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  4. 1 bunch scallions, white and light green part only
  5. 1 large hot red chile, seeded and thinly sliced
  6. 2 dozen littleneck clams, scrubbed
  7. 1 1/4 cups dry, fruity white wine
  8. 1 pound shelled and deveined medium shrimp
  9. Crusty bread, for serving
  1. In a large deep skillet, heat the extra-virgin olive oil until shimmering. Add the shiitake mushrooms and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add the scallions and chile and cook for 2 minutes, until just softened.
  2. Add the clams and wine and cook uncovered, stirring, until half of the clams are opened, about 4 minutes. Add the shrimp and cook, stirring, until all of the clams are open and the shrimp are pink and cooked through, about 4 minutes longer. Serve in deep bowls with crusty bread to sop up the sauce.

Suggested Pairing

The bright, focused acidity of an Albariño from Rías Baixas is a natural with shellfish.
