Last Spring, we went to Italy for two weeks and I am still in awe of its sheer beauty and mouthwatering Italian cuisine.
As I love seafood, I indulged in meals after meals of them, such as this Italian sauteed clams.
I love clams, but when you have fresh clams on skillet cooked with tomatoes, white wine, garlic and herb, you practically have a perfect dish.
The briny and savory taste of clams pairs flawlessly with the ingredients.
This dish is so good!
You don’t have to be in Italy or an expensive Italian restaurant to savor this mouthwatering sauteed clams.
This recipe is extremely easy and takes only 15 minutes to make.
For the clams, you can use Manila clams or little neck clams.
Both delivers amazing results.

Scrub, clean and rinsed the clams with cold water. Drain and set aside.
Heat up a skillet (cast-iron preferred) and add the olive oil. Saute the garlic until slightly browned, then add the clams. Stir a few times before adding the white wine and tomatoes.
