Confronted with a pile of clams and a bottle of Albariño, Galicia's crisp white wine, Gwyneth Paltrow spontaneously created this tasty recipe. It couldn't be simpler: The wine is infused with garlic and bay leaves while it steams open the clams. A splash of olive oil completes the dish.
Galicia, in northwestern Spain, isn't just home to much of Spain's fishing industry; it also produces vibrant, citrusy white wines from the Albariño grape. Albariños are a great accompaniment to any kind of shellfish (much like a squeeze of lemon).
