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.

Instructions Checklist
  • Put the clams, garlic, bay leaves and wine in a large skillet. Bring the wine to a boil over moderately high heat. Cover with a tight-fitting lid and cook until the clams open, about 10 minutes; discard any clams that don't open. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the clams to 4 bowls. Stir the olive oil into the broth, and then pour over the clams. Serve hot, with crusty bread.

Suggested Pairing

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).
